The full video of the first of the ‘Biodiversity Walks‘, a programme of Parco Italia – a proposal by Stefano Boeri Architetti and AlberItalia oriented to the realisation and connection of ecological corridors in Italy – for the promotion of local territories and their biodiversity, held at the “Cratere degli Astroni” Natural Reserve, has been released.

The “Biodiversity Walks” are a programme by Parco Italia aimed at promoting local territories and their biodiversity. The walks aim to disseminate the Parco Italia project and raise public awareness about the importance of managing and protecting the existing natural heritage in a sustainable and caring way, minimising risks such as landscape fragmentation and hydrogeological risks, while increasing ecological and cultural connectivity. These dialogues cover various topics related to the unique features and challenges of different landscapes and territories encountered along the walks, as well as major subjects of interest related to climate change, cities, forests and biodiversity.

Located in the Municipality of Pozzuoli, Campania, and just 8 kilometers away from the city of Naples, the “Cratere degli Astroni” Natural Reserve is an ancient volcanic crater characterized by a dense and flourishing forest covering 250 hectares, hundreds of years old. Mia Canestrini and Maria Chiara Pastore take us on a journey to discover this Reserve, highlighting the importance of establishing the foundations for a new coexistence between humans, animals, and the plant kingdom that surrounds us.
