Terramatta

Cooperativa Sociale 'Terramatta'

Giorgio and the perfect zucchino.

Giorgio is frustrated with the amount of perfectly good produce that is left to rot in the fields, simply because it doesn’t meet some arbitrary aesthetic standard. In this mini-episode we visit Giorgio at the farm of the social cooperative Terramatta, which he founded in Ragusa, Sicily. The aim of the cooperative is to create employment opportunities for people from disadvantaged backgrounds, all whilst rejecting the idea that a non-cylindrical zucchino is an imperfect zucchino.
