A family and its ties to the region

The Paterno family has been engaged in agriculture for a number of generations and it is precisely the family-run farm which gave rise to the differentiation of business models and the future establishment of the holding company.

Growing crops on the slopes of the Lagorai mountains and the connected business activities enabled the family to broaden their outlook towards wider horizons without ever betraying their origins.

Local social and economic development is the Group’s mission. It is no coincidence that it chose Valsugana as its base.
