Digital and Innovation, ICT and Ecology: ITE Amabile’s 4C wins first prize

The Luigi Amabile Institute of Economics in Avellino differs in digital skill training. The “FourC” project wins first prize in the Digital @ Innovation Call of the Campania Territorial School Office in collaboration with AICA. The project – which saw the fourth class C as the protagonist – was awarded for the development of ICT skills with Irpina wine and wine excellence through a solution to improve the wine fermentation process.

“We are happy and at the same time proud of the achievement of our children – commented the teacher Antonella Pappalardo, who added – we are increasingly referring to the professions associated with ICT, which are no longer the future, but the ‘Today represents in terms of job supply. Not surprisingly, sector studies give us increasingly alarming data: desperate for the search for specialized staff; 1,800 vacancies in our region alone, 6 thousand in Lazio and over 15 thousand in Lombardy (Confindustria data ). We as a school can train these skills that are required on the market today.

Here is a short presentation of the winning project: “The project aims to improve and enhance the digital skills of young people in the province of Avellino through training courses that have a positive impact, on the one hand on young people in Irpinia and, on the other. , on the production and enterprise of excellence in our territory. , because it focuses on creating conditions for virtual participation in skills also by geographically distributed users.

To do this, the class group intends to design an open didactic and laboratory environment to deliver multimedia content, courses, interactive and asynchronous lessons, tests and therefore the development of knowledge, skills and competencies of the young participants in the courses to help. .

The ambition given to the class by this initiative is precisely that of developing professional profiles capable of creating innovative solutions based on information / digital technologies, applied to production and marketing processes of companies from an industry 4.0 and IoT Perspective.

The didactic platform provided is designed to facilitate the exchange of teachers and students in the most frequent exchanges of roles: the participant in the course or laboratory activity receives content in specific areas and offers training courses and courses in other Areas or in other phases. .

After an analysis of the context of the territorial enterprises of excellence, the class group identified the area on which the application is concentrated in the production of wine. It is known that the province of Avellino has 3 DOCG certifications: Taurasi, Fiano di Avellino and Greco di Tufo. For its productive excellence, Avellino is a subsidiary of the Federico II University of Naples for the Faculty of Agriculture – Viticulture and Enology (VE).

So the process that was considered was that of the fermentation of the must. During the first phase of fermentation, the yeast is used and measured to convert the sugar of the pressed grapes, ie must, into alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2).

The final quality of the wine is largely determined during the fermentation process. Both a precise monitoring as well as a careful critical analysis of the conditions and components of the process are necessary, focusing on the production of a high quality wine.

Key idea.

Industry 4.0 and IoT technologies were considered useful to experiment with an improvement in the wine fermentation process, to make the production decisively more sustainable, without waste and with higher quality of the finished product.

The data thus detected by the IoT sensors are collected and organized in a database based on a SQL database and made available to the winemaker via a website for:

  • continuous monitoring of fermentation by CO2 and sugar temperature sensors,
  • a comparison of these parameters with previous production statistics as “good years”.


  1. Laboratory learning experience on Industry 4.0 and IoT topics based on cooperation and collaboration,
  2. Realization of a solution applied for a productive context of excellence in the Irpinia region,
  3. Students ready to transfer digital innovation to other young people in the area.
