Titina Pigna is the research and development manager of La Guardiense winery in Guardia Sanframondi (Benevento).

Her life memories are intimately linked to the cooperative which was founded in 1960 by her father together with two other partners. It represented an economic, social and community resource for the entire community that had an impact on the fate of the area. In the video interview in which she is the protagonist, she tells the past and the future of the winery that have both been intertwined thanks to the cultivation of the Falanghina grape and the wine made from it.
