The Park Tastes

Adamello Park covers an area of 51,000 ha. About 10% of the area consists of lands used for more or less intense agricultural purposes.
The traditional alpine agricultural system which had characterized Adamello Park until the industrialization age allowed the gradual cultivation of lands often steep and difficult to work, as well as the development of an agriculture able to produce everything necessary for the survival of the families. Many pieces of this system have been gradually replaced by a new agricultural model characterized by market-oriented products. However, the area has preserved ancient features that have undergone the necessary modernization.
