Chiana Valley Bank: at the start of the project “TREA – Agriculture, Food and Agriculture, and Environment.”


“For a local bank that as the Cooperative Credit Bank Val di Chiana Tuscan-Umbrian was born as Raiffeisen over one hundred years ago, it is natural to start from a strong support to the primary sector to address the current economic crisis, by providing those already in the field and those who want to start a new business tools such as, expert advice and funding. “To say this has been the President Mara Moretti and Vice-President Carlo  Capeglioni of BCC based in Chiusi, opening up the work of the conferences of the new project” Three A – Agriculture, Agribusiness, Environment “held on April 11 and April 16 in Cortona to Chiusi two occasions to meet with entrepreneurs throughout the area of responsibility of the Bank between the provinces of Siena, Arezzo and Perugia. In addition to the history of the Bank and a region characterized by many typical products of the highest quality, the reasons for this project are also in the fact that agriculture and agri-food sectors that are better held to the crisis and that most seem to attract young people looking employment, with enrollment in the colleges and the Faculty of Agriculture who have grown strongly in recent times (an increase of about 30%). And ‘why Chiana Valley Bank has decided to launch the project and to do so in collaboration with the two companies of the Group Credit Cooperative – BIT SpA and ICCREA BancaImpresa SpA – which specialize in consulting in the three areas related to the primary financial support and also a major investment. “Faced with an economic situation, – said the director of Chiana Valley Bank Fulvio Benicchi concluding the two meetings – which has had serious repercussions in our own area of expertise in sectors such as construction and its supply chain, agriculture and the ‘food have been shown to better withstand the difficulties. For this the Bank and its Board of Directors have decided to start this journey, making themselves available for young people (even with training in schools of the territory) and entrepreneurs, offering the best of its Group in terms of advice and funding and staying next to them in seeking isieme the best way to react to problems. “On how to resist to the crisis in concrete if you are farmers or you are starting an activity of this kind, some indications have been given as part of the conferences by Mauro Conti, director of BIT SpA: “First of all, – he said – it would be appropriate to focus on exports also to non-traditional markets, also orient themselves more and more on the quality of the products, choose the environmental and energy sustainability, prefer the diversity of products and above all pursue the aggregation. ” “Making the system – has underlined Conti – is an essential way for farmers in this area, often of small or very small, if they want to deal with broader markets, national or international.” For all this, both to facilitate the aggregations that to understand how to develop the export overcoming the barriers of different regulations, or to improve energy efficiency or even to interact better with the large-scale distribution, Chiana Valley Bank is able BIT SpA and through this I plan to offer to local businesses, consulting and specialized experience. And if the companies want to introduce innovation that requires significant investments, financial support, as pointed out by Attilio peaks during the meetings, it is guaranteed by Iccrea BancaImpresa always present next to Bank Chiana and then to businesses. Great interest was shown for the project farmers present at the two meetings that have witnessed with their actions all the difficulties caused by the crisis, but also to the bureaucracy in the sector and thus accepting the proposals with enthusiasm. Interest was also shown by the representatives of associations and institutions, in particular in Chiusi by Mayor Stephen Scaramelli and Claudio Del Re, director of the Region of Tuscany, who spoke of a new project aimed to enable young people to start new businesses in these areas by making available unused land of the Region: a regional project that could find important points of interaction with the one just launched by the Bank theValdichiana with BIT and ICCREA BancaImpresa.

Fair Play Award: presented the 17th edition to be held in Cast 1, 2 and 3 July.


The organizational machine has already been set in motion for the seventeenth edition of the International Prize “Fair Play” Maecenas that this year will change location. It will in fact Castiglion Fiorentino to host an event that will present some new features for the 2013 edition, but not in the form and values of ethics and fair play that marked the awards of more than 250 characters in these 17 years have trod the stage suggestive . One of these is precisely the aspect of communication and visibility of the Prize “Fair Play” which in recent years has emphasized the Arezzo area. This is also one of the reasons that allowed the organizing committee to get the sponsorship and the beginning of a collaboration with Confindustria Arezzo. “The Fair Play Award Maecenas – explains the President Angelo Morelli – now in its seventeenth edition, has become more and more a point of reference and discussion in relation to the concepts and purpose that you are responsible regarding ethical behavior, loyalty, fair play not only in sport but also in civil society. This commitment is particularly directed at young people, and this year in particular involves them through numerous initiatives. We are pleased and honored that this year Confindustria Arezzo has granted the patronage of the event, which allows you to activate a future collaboration aimed at improving aspects that link the purpose of the award to the business world and society.
Significant also the realization of the new site that aims to become a reference point not only the prize but with the concept of Fair Play at the international level.
Last but not least the new location and the new scenario that will see for the tenth consecutive year the presence of RAI SPORT for an important promotion of the territory. “” The intent and purpose of this initiative, now in its seventeenth year, is commendable: ethics and fair play are two core values not only in sports but also in civil society and in the economic world – explains Andrea Fabianelli, President of Confindustria Arezzo – we decided to sponsor the Fair Play Award Maecenas to highlight and emphasize the importance basic values that unite the two worlds. If we want, sport, such as the enterprise, is a philosophy of life that emphasizes a harmonious physical strength, will and spirit. Both, along with culture and education, create a lifestyle based on discipline, the educational value of good example and respect fundamental ethical principles, trying to help improve the future of society. ” At the headquarters of Confindustria was also presented the new website of the Prize “Fair Play”, a further step towards an international event that will help the name of Arezzo to be known in the world and will allow users to interact with the Committee organizer with the ability to vote through their PC, tablet or smartphone, one of the athletes vying for the prize. Castiglion Fiorentino is an event that in addition to animate the summer 2013 will allow the Municipality of the Chiana Valley to expand its own name and raise awareness of its artistic beauty. “Hosting for the first time the Fair Play Award is for our City a great bet after the two historic homes of Arezzo and Cortona – says Guido Albucci, Department of Culture of Castiglion Fiorentino. We have not ripped anything to anyone. If anything, the prize has found fertile ground, and by the city administration’s interest to ensure that the Fair Play becomes a manifestation par excellence of Castiglion Fiorentino to boost the country’s image. In this regard, to provide the logistics to make unique awards ceremony in the square of the Keep. “To believe in the ethical values of sport and promoted by the” Fair Play “Estra also present at the press conference at the headquarters of Confindustria and has chosen to support the seventeenth edition of the Prize. Among the partnerships that will liven up the event Castiglion Fiorentino also the Chamber of Commerce of Arezzo that this year, as in previous editions of the “Fair Play” since 1997, will contribute to spread the message of the Prize.

Last year were 25,214, + 5.61%, attendance in extra-hotel facilities.

Last year were 25,214, + 5.61%, attendance in extra-hotel facilities.


More and more tourists choose to spend their holidays in extra-hotel facilities of Castiglion Fiorentino. Attendance, compared to last year, increased by 5.61%. You go from 23,875 visitors in 2011 to 25,214 in 2012. 1339 more admissions, therefore, an increase, as mentioned, of 5.61%. But the news is more comforting than the domestic market. In fact, cottages and vacation rentals in Castiglione come more and more Italians, + 38.26%. Same trend for foreigners although here the percentage is lower, + 3.97%. And if you assemble the data arrivals of tourists both foreign and domestic is an increase of 14.06%. In particular, the percentage rise in arrivals in the month of June, which is in the 3 winter months, January, February and March. The first came with a + 7.34%, while there was an excellent + 71.19% in February. But “if you want that tourism continues to be one of the strengths of our economy – says Lidia Castellucci President of the Association of Tour Operators Castiglion Fiorentino – is necessary to update certain criteria and match supply to demand. Now the tourist is hysteresis in a ‘multi-interest’. Travel throughout the year, is very mobile, and he wants to meet all its curiosity but also wants to services and facilities next to a fair value. In order to fulfill such requirements is, therefore, essential to an upgrading of the infrastructure, the use of a network of services efficiently and a high degree of professionalism “.
The only sour note comes from the hotel sector in 2012, which unfortunately experiences significant declines. There is talk of a – 24% for Italians and a – 12% for foreigners.
On 2 April, the Association of Tour Operators of Castiglion Fiorentino has celebrated its first year of life. And in its hypothetical cake shone over 12 thousand candles. 12,516, to be precise. One for every tourist who last year stayed in the country of the tower of the keep. German, Dutch, American, and not only crowned Castiglion Fiorentino as the ideal place to spend your holidays. Usually we are held three days but there are some, the lucky ones, has also booked for one or even two weeks. Novelty the arrival of tourists from countries in greatest economic expansion as Australia, Russia, Brazil and South Africa. In short, despite the crisis, these numbers tell a favorable tourist season well hope for the next summer just around the corner. It is therefore time to contribute, each according to his ability, to the strengthening and development of the industry. You have to think of tourism as an important economic activity for the development of the territory and the employment opportunities it can offer. The practical example we have only had a few months ago when just the A.O.T.C. has signed an agreement with the High School “John Castiglione” in Castiglion Fiorentino for a number of internship. “A great opportunity – concludes the President – and for us, owners of facilities, which for young students.” Tourism is one of the most important of contemporary society and is now destined to become an industry leading in all modern economies and the primary source of income and employment in many countries of the world. And it is for this reason that it is necessary to disclose a new “culture of tourism”. Tourism is also to offer both practical guidelines and opportunities for young people and people who want to design their professional future in tourism.

Fair Play: The A.O.T.C. convene a meeting with the social and economic fabric of the country.

Fair play is synonymous with loyalty. And today more than ever this rule, even if not written, it must take the form of an official engagement in everyday life, as in sports. Too much violence inside and outside the stadiums. Too much hatred is unleashed to defend the colors of a flag. Too many scenes of madness that are consumed in the streets. To seek, therefore, to make a stop to all this and then to disseminate the fundamental themes of fair play, loyalty in sports, was established 16 years ago the international award “Fair Play Maecenas.” First there was Arezzo, Cortona then and now the event has resulted in Castiglion Fiorentino. 1, 2 and 3 July in the town of Torre del Cassero there will be a real parade of big names in the world of sports.

I castiglionesi, each according to their means, they should participate in the organization. Fair Play has become the manifestation of the entire community. ” The event, in fact, could turn into a sort of springboard for the local economy, now more than ever on standby. A national and international spotlight for the entire territory and for its excellence where the winners will become ambassadors themselves hospitality of Castiglion Fiorentino. “We found the resources – announced Guido Albucci councilor for marketing and promotion, tourism development area – to keep museums open.

Sunday, April 14 release of the new G.E.C.O. of Castiglion It’s called the “Yawn.”


After the success of the first issue, the Gecko (Group Hikers Castiglionesi Organized) proposes a second excursion. This is the walk “At Yawn”, scheduled for Sunday, April 14. But be careful with the word “yawn” is not given the mood of the participants (do not worry the alarm will not sound certainly dawn!) But simply an enchanted place. In fact, the departure is scheduled for 8:45 am at Piazzale Garibaldi and the trip provides a route for a period of about 2 hours. The caravan of the hikers will address the various and modest ups and downs Apparita of Cozzano, the yawn, of course, and Boscatello. The return is at around 11:45 or so.
