In 2012, the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity, in collaboration with the University of Turin and the University of Palermo, undertook a study into the sustainability of European Presidia.
The study aimed to assess the results, in terms of agri-environmental, socio-cultural and economic sustainability, of a significant sample of Presidia.
During the months of June and July 2012, 47 producers where interviewed to inform the process of drafting a questionnaire for all Presidia. The encouraging results showed an improvement for the majority of Presidia examined.
