The project Niasca Portofino (a company founded by Portofino residents and regulars, passionate about the village) has the purpose to: restore local traditions; reuse abandoned land; revamp decaying buildings; bootstrap virtuous local businesses; offer high quality and at a reasonable price services and products; make Portofino alive and kicking 12 months a year; stretching the peak season; convey the beauty of Portofino and its local products in Italy and abroad.
These goal will be reached through 4 synergistic initiatives:
- Small mixed farming,(we bed out herbs and spices, citrus trees and ancient varieties of fruit trees. We maintain hundreds of olive trees);
- Quality food manufacturing,(we are equipping two small
workshops in Portofino).
- Food market (we are opening a tasting point in Portofino).
- Courses (we work closely with local communities in order to target educational institutions, hikers, cruises and whoever is interested in Portofino).
