Gastronomy and Traditions

 

 

Atina is a village of 4,200 inhabitants, listed since 2019 among the official list of the most beautiful villages of Italy.

Halfway between Rome and Naples, the village overlooks the fertile Valle di Comino valley.

It is part of the Apennine mountain range and is backed by the foothills of the Abruzzo, Lazio & Molise National Park.

 

Atina and the surrounding area have remained frozen in a micro-economy uncontaminated by the drawbacks experienced by more developed regions of northern Italy.

The region offers a nature of breathtaking beauty, high quality local gastronomic products, a multi- millennial history and an extremely rich architectural heritage.

 

For centuries Atina was part of a powerful civilization (Samnite) before the birth of Rome.

The region also bears witness to the first vestiges of Christianity in Europe (foundation of the Benedictine order).

 

 
LOCAL PRODUCTS

 

 

After a long process of valorisation, the Cannellini beans from Atina obtained, on 5 AUgust 2010, the prestigious recognition represented by the

DOP (Protected Designation of Origin). The registration in the list of DOP products testifies not only to the excellent quality of this legume,

but also to the beauty of a territory rich in history and a population that has always been dedicated to work and linked to traditions.
