Ventotene is a small Mediterranean island, volcanic archipelago pontine Latina province off the coast of Lazio and Campania. The depths of the waters surrounding Ventotene are among the most beautiful in the Mediterranean, a few beaches.
The main port of embarkation to reach the island is to Formia, where connections are active multi-day ferry or hydrofoil.
The Plain Sciuscello result of the design of a pole where agricultural experiment innovative cultivation techniques for lentil and Ventotene for horticultural products typical of the island.
The "Sciuscello", ie the carob tree, a tree that was now no more, at the center of a small parcel of land nell'appezzamento to which we gave the name.
The project was born from the meeting of two friends who are closer to the ground for passion, not both of the craft, but I decided to make this as beautiful as strenuous adventure: Paolo De Feo, a retired bank manager, and Frederick Scanni, a publisher and bookseller who abandoned Rome to be enveloped completely by the magic of the island.
At the base of their idea is the use of natural farming, in the total absence of pesticides, chemical fertilizers and as used in the traditional cultivation, but by helping the soil to self-fertilize through intercropping of plants and protection of the soil with abundant and appropriate mulches.
The walk to the Plain of Sciuscello offers a course where they tell and share experiences in this oasis of tranquility through guided observation of crops and some experiential workshops.
During the walk you can buy local products and taste the local wine is produced from grapes grown on the island.
