MedLS is an integrated development project implemented through the creation of a common circuit, cd MedLS circuit, in order to summarize in a single concept the values typical of the Mediterranean Lifestyle (tradition, slowness, extent, nature and social relations). The rules and parameters needed to enable enterprises to enter the circuit MedLS will be described in a handbook prepared by a group of experts to form the so-called Technical Committee.
