Tratos helps promote its region Tuscany

Cable manufacturer Tratos Cavi has produced a colour booklet celebrating the beautiful Valtiberina valley in Tuscany where it has operated its manufacturing facility for over 40 years.

The 32 page ‘Discover Valtiberina’ guide explains the geology, flora and fauna of this picturesque valley, along with the human history dating back to the Palaeolithic period through the Bronze Age, Etruscan and Romans, Renaissance and right up to the present day. It examines the impact man has had in the region, including the building of the Montedoglio dam, as well as the many towns and villages, the most notable of which is the ancient town of Pieve Santo Stefano.

As you might expect, local cuisine and craft feature in the guide, including dishes typical of the region, lace making and cigar production.

Whilst the region is steeped in history, the inhabitants of the Valtiberina valley are very much in the present day. The valley is home to a number of industries, the largest of which is Tratos, which has two manufacturing plants employing 300 people, with a turnover well in excess of 150 million Euros.

The new ‘Discover Valtiberina’ Guide has been a labour of love for Dr Maurizio Bragagni, Export Manager of Tratos: “Tratos is a family owned business and we are proud of our cultural heritage and the beautiful setting of the valley. We want to encourage visitors to the area and help local businesses in the process. We hope the Guide helps in achieving that by showing the highlights, whether it be the regional cuisine and local crafts, the scenery or some of the many festivals we are home to.”
