Solidarity is one of Europe’s core values. Something that the more it is cultivated, the more society flourishes, to the benefit of all. This was demonstrated on 1 September 2023 by the Consorzio di Tutela della I.G.P. Riso Nano Vialone Veronese, which donated a tonne of rice for the Vatican’s soup kitchen. 

This precious cargo was personally delivered to Pope Francis by a delegation from Isola della Scala, composed of Roberto Venturi, sole director of Ente Fiera, the mayor Luigi Mirandola, the president of the Consortium for the protection of Nano Vialone Veronese PGI rice, Renato Leoni , Don Maurizio Viviani, parish priest of San Zeno in Verona, and the artist Guido Rainaldi, who wanted to donate the work “Misericordia” already presented at the 2018 Rice Fair to the Pope.

On this occasion, Vialone Nano Veronese PGI rice was cooked and served to the poor by the Sisters of Mother Teresa. The recipe of the day? Risotto all’Isolana, a nutritious first course that represents the traditions of Isola della Scala: a generous land, home to European excellence that nourishes unique values.
