Podere Pantaleone

Few kilometers from the town centre, Podere Pantaleone is a real open air museum, well suited to teaching purposes, an oasis of ecological and enviromental importance covering six hectars of farmland where the human presence is limited to the area near the entrance. Here the local fauna und flora have freely grown, creating an habitat of great enviromental interest.
Till the late fifties, Podere Pantaleone was like the other holdings surrounding it: the vine rows were substained by huge pollarded trees and inbetween long pieces of land were planted with wheat, corn, sugarbeetand and lucerne.
