Pastoral revival and the return to the mountains

Free event

Extensive pastures, typical of pastoral systems, give us healthier food because the animals graze on grasses and hay that humans couldn’t live off by themselves. Sheep and goats do not compact the terrain of their gentle pastures, but oxygenate it; their manure improves its fertility.

In a world overwhelmed by the climate crisis, sheep and goats represent an opportunity to revive the mountains and marginal areas. We start from the Alpine village of Paraloup, recovered by the Nuto Revelli Foundation and transformed into a model of sustainable development for the mountains, and tell other stories of pastoral revival.

In line with current regulations, events at Biodiversity House at Cheese 2021 are reserved exclusively for visitors in possession of a Digital COVID Certificate (also known as a Green Pass). Each event has a maximum attendance of 35 people, and is organized on a first come, first served basis. Arriving at least 15 minutes before the beginning of the event is advised in order to ensure a place.
