Food and Beverages

Food and Beverages

Tasty food for when it’s cold or wet, but also some of the finest delicacies to satisfy the most jaded of palates. This is the special mix which makes the Valle d’Aosta cuisine something special and unforgettable. This is all naturally associated with our local wines, with a good production of both reds and whites from some of the highest vineyards in Europe (up to 1200 m). Then, wash it all down with a glass of grappa or genepy.

Crafts and fancy goods

Crafts and fancy goods

The pounding heart of the Valle d’Aosta tradition is woodwork, used in all crafts and arts, and indeed tools and building materials. This does not mean we can forget fabrics, iron, and soapstone. The craft market is evolving towards considerable artistic output. Great sculptors are performing careful research and planning work for individual sculptures or carvings which then become true works of art.

Building

Building

Traditional architecture in the Valle d'Aosta is characterised by its terse construction and by a series of common elements in both designation and the choice of materials. Renovation work and new builds still use the typical style of mountain villages and, coming along with a more modern style, often put together warm and heavy materials such as stone and wood with lighter, more intangible materials such as glass.

Publishing and printing

Publishing and printing

The Valle d'Aosta publishes many books, thanks in part to the great food for thought which such a diverse and disparate region provides for printers. Valle d'Aosta also has a lot of printers for the many local magazines, posters, and leaflets.

Energy

Energy

Water is a great natural resource in the Valle d'Aosta, where it is mostly used to generate electricity. There is so much water that we can produce a lot more hydroelectricity then we actually need using the various dams and pressure pipelines spread throughout our region. In recent years, we have also been developing technology for saving energy, renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, and sustainable mobility.

Industrial manufacturing

Industrial manufacturing

In the last ten years, this has seen much expansion in the industries we already had, such as steelmaking in Cogne and Heineken beer brewing. Alongside these industries, we have seen the ongoing development of small and medium-sized industries which specialise in building, sports equipment, and the making of machine parts. In the lower Valley, many technology companies have opened up to provide for the IT and related markets.

Services

Services

In a market which is increasingly global and always evolving, and where companies feel the need to concentrate more and more on their core business rather than wasting energy in processes which fall outside their own particular fields, providing services has become more and more fundamental in terms of seeing efficiency in the manufacturing process. Service companies must be more and more technologically prepared, with better management and professional skills, so they can help their customers during the various stages of analysis, development, and solving company problems.

Sport and Wellbeing

Sport and Wellbeing

It is clear to everyone that this is the world centre of Alpine sports, but now the Valle d’Aosta is trying out new, “all-year-round” sports. These include hiking, climbing, horse riding, swimming, mountaineering, golf, tennis, ice skating, and archery. For those who want to fly we also have paragliding, gliding, and ballooning. The more adventurous may wish to try rafting or hydrospeed, or the thrills of riding a mountain bike.

IT and Communications Technology

IT and Communications Technology

Definitions such as automated manufacturing systems, just-in-time, and total quality were all the rage a few years ago, but are now obsolete. Rapid technological development means we now concentrate more on global markets (made possible by a banking system increasingly connected across IT networks) and the “net economy” (a term used for the various types of business based upon the use of the web network for sales and competitiveness).
