Bicycle journey through agricultural Italy

Giampiero Mazzocchi is a researcher at CREA (Council for Research in Agriculture and the Analysis of Agricultural Economics), where he works on agri-food systems analysis, agricultural and rural development policies, generational turnover and agriculture in inland areas.

These are all issues with which we are familiar and which in some cases have been the focus of the assembly working tables. This is also why when Federica Luoni and Franco Ferroni, coordinators of #CambiamoAgricoltura, asked us to lend Giampiero a hand in planning the travel itineraries, we jumped at the chance and asked members and friends of WWOOF and Rete Semi Rurali for their willingness to welcome him for a visit to their rural realities and, where possible, to offer him shelter for a night.

The goal is to (re)build a sincere and patient narrative of Italian agricultural landscapes understood as the result of the daily actions of women farmers, animals, children, the elderly, women and men of our territories.

You can find the presentation of the project on the Coalition’s website pages and follow its progress stage by stage on the public Facebook pages

New GMOs, European Parliament approves deregulation

The 42 organizations of the GMO-Free Italy Coalition (including WWF, Lipu, Legambiente, Greenpeace, Federbio, Assobio, Navdanya International) have expressed deep regret over the European Parliament’s vote on deregulation, judging the elimination of risk assessment on new GMOs to be serious and against the founding elements of the European pact.
