Piccola Pesca

"You did not kill the fish only to keep alive and to sell for food, he thought. You killed him for pride and because you are a fisherman. You loved him when he was alive and you loved him after."

The Old Man and the Sea (E. Hemingway)

Small-scale artisanal fishing is not only one of the oldest vocations in the world, which survives more than three thousand years of history: small-scale artisanal fishing is a way of life and of respecting the great sea, facing it with small vessels and competing with its resources on equal terms. It is an art that is still handed down from generation to generation and is of great cultural, social and economic value for our coastal communities.
