AGRO PONTINO COMENIUS EUROPEAN PROJECT
Agro Pontino is a vast plain area located south of Rome, between the Tyrrhenian Sea, the series of hills of the Mountains Albani and Mountains Lepini and south, the Promontory of Circeo.
The agro Pontino is an area of Lazio where agriculture is more developed. The typical products are not lacking in these areas: the Olive of Gaeta, the Roman Marrow / Squash, Celery the white Sperlonga, until the ham Bassiano, strawberries of Nemi, the Artichoke romanesco Sezze and wine of the Castelli Romani.
As regards the products of the dairy, the symbol is undoubtedly the "flower of milk" and mozzarella di Bufala, with farming and marketing of prestigious brands and many other small dairies.
The flowers favored by the climate allows us to obtain products of high quality orchids Pontine and colorful calle. Important to the production of fruit and vegetable market watermelons.The fruit and vegetable market of Funds is one of the largest and most important in Italy.
The Castelli Romani due their name to the presence of at least a noble mansion in each of them and even if some of these mansions were destroyed during past historical events, their ruins are still witnessing the feudal origin of this zone. Viticulture grew gradually in this area thanks to the periodical distribution of pieces of land among war veterans (starting from those who participated to the Lepanto’s battle and arriving to the ex-servicemen of the First World War), who utilised their modest estates to create a production for a private consume and a more intense one for the local market.
Even if belonging to an ancient tradition, the cultivation of vineyards in the Castelli Romani’s area, knew a great development with the building growth in Rome, as it determined a gradual destruction of the wine estates which once, during the pontifical period, were within the city itself; these were the so called ‘terreni casalini’; vineyards with plants growing on ancient house ruins, very famous for the quality of their production. The Castelli Romani’s vineyards go from the valley to the slopes of the hills in that places where the mechanized cultivation is still possible.
The vineyards situated on the slopes are surrounded by olive groves, which create a silvery frame to them. In addition to the DOC wines chosen according to the rules, each producer sells on the market wines with the generic denomination “DOC Castelli Romani”, that has been recently created, and I.G.T. (Typical Geographical Designation) wines for lunchtime, satisfying the different customers’ needs. These last type of wines reaches an high quality level.
With the flow of migration from all over Europe, population growth has increased. The greatest number of foreigners in the municipality of Pomezia comes from Europe, followed the African continent, and shows the significant presence of people from Latin American countries Argentina and Peru, that exceeds a percentage that emigrated from the Middle East and the rest of China and the Philippines. These appearances are well visible even in the schools.
The work is the main reason that forces many foreigners to settle in pometina, as in the rest of the province of Rome. Following reasons of family reunification or study. The conspicuous presence on the territory of Pomezia population of the CEE (France, Germany, Great Britain) can be explained partly by the proximity of Rome, more established national associations and international organizations.
Precisely because of these immigration flows in Pomezia is the presence of many restaurants, shops and other businesses run by immigrants making known cultural traditions, religious and foodstuffs. All this has helped to enrich and influence our knowledge and our lifestyles.
