In fact, the world exhibition of agricultural mechanics started the organizational phase on November 30 with the opening of registrations for exhibiting industries, and in just 3 weeks more than 1,000 registrations have been formalized. Of these, about 700 were from Italian industries and about 300 from foreign manufacturers.

“We have the responsibility of offering a very high-level review,” FederUnacoma President Mariateresa Maschio says, “both in terms of technical content and in terms of cultural aspects and political reflections, since this trade show addresses the great challenges of global agriculture, primarily those of food security and environmental sustainability.
