Borghetto San Carlo

Since 2015, the Agricultural Cooperative has been managing the Borghetto San Carlo estate in Rome, in via Cassia 1420: twenty-two hectares of public land with a complex of 1,400 square meters of farmhouses from the early 1900s ( currently under restoration ). The assignment, with a rental contract for thirty years, comes with the victory of the Rome city to cultivate tender promoted by Roma Capitale.
