Technical Descriptions Dairy Products:
After the Second World War the production of Montebore is little more than nothing, the valleys are depopulated and the traditions are forgotten. Young people prefer to work in cities rather than continue the family tradition in the country. The production of Montebore continues until the last manufacturer, thirty years ago, goes out of business. This cheese is literally "resurrected" through the Presidio that, in '99, tracked Carolina Bracco, the last repository of traditional cheesemaking skills. A producer, Roberto Grattone, has followed step by step, learning little by little this ancient technique of working becoming the ambassador.
