Regenerating Villa Fortuna is an experimental agricultural project with the purpose of regenerating a farmland that was subject to decades of intensive cultivation. It is being conducted on the fields that surround what will become the headquarters of Fondazione Capellino, in the municipality of San Salvatore Monferrato, Italy.
The experimentation will be respectful of soil fertility and local ecosystem, by applying techniques such as syntropic agriculture. Unlike the traditional ones, these techniques facilitate life, because they offer a better habitat to mammals, birds, insects and microorganisms.
With constant cooperation and monitoring by experts and academics, he results of this experimentation will be made publicly available to encourage more sustainable forms of agricultural production, respectful of biological diversity and, more than anything else, enabling everyone, not just an élite, to afford cleaner and better food.
