Free event

Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human settlements. Systems designed in this way generate farms that are resistant, resilient and in balance with the ecosystem.

The management of water, the conservation of biodiversity and the increase in soil fertility are some of the milestones of permaculture design.
This multidisciplinary and systemic approach intertwines principles of architecture, ecology, forestry, agriculture and livestock together with the use of appropriate technologies and digital mapping tools.

The workshops, which focus on the management of pastures and water, illustrate the design phases of two national farms: the Podere dei Bianchi Galli, which breed Cornigliese sheep (Slow Food Presidium) in the Parma Apennines and the Tenuta di Paganico which raises Maremma cows in the Grosseto area (Slow Food Presidium).


  • Andrea Minchio graduated in Environmental Sciences at the University of Bologna, since 2016 he works as a consultant and designer of sustainable production systems for individuals, non-profit organizations, NGOs, farms and within international cooperation projects. He collaborates with Armonie Animali in various training projects in Italy and abroad.
  • Pietro Luciano Venezia is a veterinarian, since 1991 he works as a cooperator for Vets without borders and designer in permaculture and agroecological systems both nationally (Slow Food consultant) and internationally (Guatemala, Mexico, Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Colombia, Bolivia, Algeria, Kenya, Senegal, Gambia, Morocco, Mongolia).

The workshop is managed by RIAA . Free entry upon registration: omeopatia@pietrovenezia.it
