ARCHEOLOGIA ARBOREA FOUNDATION
(NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION OF SOCIAL UTILITY)
"...we thought it was necessary to take on ourselves the responsibility for the safeguard and conservation of the vegetal genetic inheritance, as well as the traditional knowledge and the rural culture, because we have always believed and we still believe that without our cultural roots no sustainable future is possible..."
Isabella Dalla Ragione - Archeologia Arborea Foundation (Non-Profit Organization of Social Utility) President
Thirty years of passionate research for old local varieties of fruit trees, more than a hundred and fifty ecotypes salvaged: thanks to the effort of Livio and Isabella Dalla Ragione, and the contribution of all those who have agreed to the Archeologia Arborea Project, an invaluable biological and cultural heritage was saved from being lost forever, and is currently available for study, reproduction and a new diffusion.
