CIA-Agricoltori Italiani is one of the largest agricultural organizations in Europe and in Italy. Its origin is linked to the National Farmers’ Alliance constitution in 1955. Established in December 1977 as Confederazione Italiana Coltivatori (CIC), in 1992 it took the denomination of Confederazione Italiana Agricoltori (Cia) to sanction and promote the modern role of the farmer and his business. Cia represents more than 900,000 full members; farmers and agricultural business owners. Its national headquarters are in Rome and it boasts a strong presence throughout the country in around 5000 communes, with regional, provincial and area branches.
Cia’s aims include: Protecting and developing agricultural businesses, farmers and operators in the rural world and agriculture more generally; protecting farm income as well as farmer’s civic rights, dignity and right to run a business; strengthening the role of agriculture in the Italian economy, not only as a production sector, but as heritage for our land, environmental and cultural resources and landscape; improving the competitiveness of agricultural businesses on both European and international internal markers.
Cia carries out activities and initiatives in the fields of food quality, safety and education, environmental protection and promotion, agri-tourism, forestry, organic farming, alternative energy sources, and agricultural legislative publishing and information.
