Organizers expect a positive audience's feedback for this 11th edition of the fair, as last year's numbers were mind-boggling, with more than 20,000 attendees. Visitors will be able to know more about the wines and their producers, to taste them and... buy them, of course. Plus, an eatery point with multiple booths will offer home-made delicatessen to better match the wine tastings. The Monday opening was specially designed, in the last two editions, for wine professionals, and it's been so successful so far that it's being confirmed this time too.
Mercato dei Vini 2022's manifest was created by famed graphic designer Guido Scarabattolo, a collaboration that tells a lot about Vignaioli Indipendenti's goals, according to FIVi President Lorenzo Cesconi: «Quality, originality, professionality, and first of all, a deep love for their job, for things to be done in the right way, with passion and artisanal attention. We do this in our vineyards and wine-cellars, with our wines, and so does Scarabattolo in his studio, with his illustrations. The outcome is the same: beautiful, well-done things».

FIVI – Federazione Italiana Vignaioli Indipendenti (Italian Federation of Independent Winemakers) is a non-profit, aiming at promoting and safeguarding Italian independent winemakers and their interests. But what do they mean for “independent”? It's actually a winemaker who controls the entire producing process, from vine growing to grape-harvest, from bottling to direct sale of his wines. FIVI's members are about 1,500 coming from all Italian regions, including Friuli Venezia Giulia.
