“A good time, and for that I thank the school principals Lanna and Di Iorio as well as all the speakers for wanting to highlight the importance of tomatoes in human nutrition. The high quality of the training offered by the Falco Institute will certainly be able to provide young people with all the necessary tools to be competitive in the face of future needs related to the agricultural sector”. Thus the mayor Enrico Petrella. “The Agricultural Institute is ideal for those who want to work outdoors, are interested in nature, the environment, ecology and wish to train in the agricultural, agro-food and agro-industrial sectors. Participating in the Agricultural Institute means acquiring the skills needed to protect and enhance the environment, in the production and marketing of plant or animal products. I have no doubt that the “Falco” Institute, thanks to the excellent work of the Lanna manager, the teaching staff and the technicians will be the forge of a new generation of enlightened agricultural entrepreneurs”, concludes the tricolor band.
