Bianchetta Genovese is a project that tells about the making of a local wine, whose production is very limited due to the fact that this varietal is nowadays carried on only in two specific areas near by Genova, Valpolcevera and Tigullio.
Coronata is the name of an inner district of Valpolcevera; in this area few old wine producers still in activity are teaching a group of young African refugees the old art of wine making, showing them how to enhance abandoned green areas,and so giving them the chance to transform it into a new job opportunity for the future. This new manpower is therefore working to sprout old vineyard again.
The working process is the same for the two areas: both in Valpolcevera and in Tigullio vineyards require cutting foils and binding  branches, and these operations are alternated with treatments based on sulphur and green copper against mildews and parasitical.
The grapes harvest is the most important moment of the entire working process, and it usually ends with a celebration and a photo memory of all the workers.

The Valley is a real jewel: small, cosy and lush, from the Villnöß river to the mountain summer pastures at the foot of the pale mountains. It’s always exhilarating to suddenly see the enormous grey gravel cones looming above you surmounted by sheer cliffs, rocky spikes and peaks that, depending on the time of day, are tinged with ochre, pale hues, pink or copper red.  The sun transforms the Odle/Geisler into a colourful rainbow. The three charming towns at the bottom of the valley are Tiso/Teis, S. Pietro/St. Peter and S. Maddalena/St. Magdalena. With everything that’s needed for summer and winter tourism and the best hospitality for hikers and mountain climbers, Villnöß Valley, with its numerous trails and cable mountain paths, rocky ridges, glacial cirques and peaks, is a real paradise for mountain lovers.  It comes as no surprise to know that this is where Reinhold Messner was born. Visit the Alpine summer pastures, stopping to relax, returning through dwarf pines and scented forests, spending long and fun-filled evenings at the hotel and in the village. Experience the unique and beautiful winter scenery of the Puez-Odle Nature Park. Hike through snow-covered forests and high-altitude meadows while discovering the hidden jewels of this pristine nature. A lot of beautiful winter hiking trails wind on prepared snow through a landscape of snow-capped mountain tops and forests. Along the way, the wonders of winter can be seen and experienced amidst the unspoiled Alpine nature of the area. The bright winter sun and the fresh air provide a wide view of the surrounding mountain world. Either on the way or uppon arrival, one can also warm up with some South Tyrolean delicacies in one of the many mountain huts and inns. (http://www.suedtirol-it.com/valdifunes).
