is, equally, a field of recognized importance; it spans such traditional
activities as pipe making (making use of Erica Arborea briar), confectionery
(notably the torrone), glass processing and decoration, wood working
and restoration, and embroidery.

for a considerable percentage of the internal consume.
Agricultural remains an outstanding
source of income and job; the province’s large estates are
mainly cultivated with vindes, corn, olive and almond trees, and
used for grazing.
