Wall Street Journal dedicates a mini thematic site on which we can discover Via Emilia and its many excellences among wine & food, culture, nature, and enjoy many video interviews.

Among the video interviews carried out and present on the WSJ website, contributions include the participation of the Motor Valley CEOs (Claudio Domenicali for Ducati, Stefano Domenicali for Lamborghini, Enrico Galliera for Ferrari, Horacio Pagani for Pagani, Andrea Pontremoli for Dallara) protagonists of the opening conference of the Motor Valley Fest Digital; the ambassador of Emilia Romagna cuisine in the world Chef Massimo Bottura; the President of ENIT – Italian Tourism Agency Giorgio Palmucci; the Director of the Cineteca di Bologna Foundation Gian Luca Farinelli; the American TV journalist specialized on Italy’s food & Wine culinary traditions Francine Segan.

Video tales of the Motor Valley and its many protagonists made by Motor1 and the British director-documentary maker Mark Neale will also be online.
