About the project location
Cooperativa “La Buona Terra” is situated in Umbria region, in the Center of Italy.
Passignano sul Trasimeno. The most ancient nucleus of the city is still today encircled by the middle age walls which testify the development the center underwent during the Roman Empire, evolving from a small agricultural village to a castle. Not very many historical buildings are left in the town, due to the destructions caused by the II the world war.
