La Tunnel Farm è attiva!

Tunnel farm
29 Agosto 2023
E' giunta a conclusione la realizzazione del progetto Tunnel Farm. Il 15 settembre 2023 inaugurazione ufficiale alle ore 18.30.

Il progetto Tunnel Farm si sviluppa al di sotto delle mura secolari di Torrita di Siena. Si è voluto recuperare una vecchia galleria di origini medioevali scavata nel tufo, che nei decenni ha avuto vari utilizzi: da magazzino di materie prime a rifugio antiaereo durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale. Adesso ospita ora un impianto autosufficiente dedicato alla coltivazione sostenibile di ortaggi e micro-greens. Il progetto, guidato dal Comune di Torrita di Siena, ha completato la ristrutturazione del tunnel sotterraneo che attraversa il centro storico, dando vita a un orto verticale e a un percorso storico che narra dell’evoluzione agricola e sociale della regione.

La visionaria Vertical Farm, concepita e materializzata dall’ingegnere locale Matteo Benvenuti in collaborazione con il gruppo Vertical Farm Italia, è ora operativa, rappresentando uno dei rari esempi di “indoor vertical farming” sotterraneo nel mondo. In questo ambiente controllato, le piante sono disposte su pareti dotate di illuminazione e irrigazione, agevolando la crescita e la produzione di ortaggi. Il raccolto sarà destinato a rifornire la mensa comunale.

La porzione restante del tunnel è stata ristrutturata con cura e ospita un percorso tematico che narra la trasformazione del territorio di Torrita, storicamente legato all’agricoltura. Questa esposizione presenta manufatti, attrezzi e fotografie evocative.

Il progetto ha ottenuto l’approvazione del Ministero della Cultura, del Demanio e della Soprintendenza, facendo parte di un’ampia opera di recupero che ha coinvolto l’ex rifugio antiaereo. Questo bene è stato trasferito dallo Stato al Comune di Torrita di Siena grazie a un accordo di valorizzazione firmato nel luglio 2022.

Il tunnel e la vertical farm, accessibili tramite un ingresso appena sotto Porta a Pago e un altro in Via Traversa Valdichiana Ovest, saranno ufficialmente inaugurati il 15 settembre alle 18:30. Da quel momento in poi, saranno aperti ai residenti, ai visitatori, ai gruppi scolastici, agli studiosi e a tutti coloro che desiderano esplorare questo luogo storico. Il percorso parte dalle radici rurali per giungere alle tecniche agricole all’avanguardia.
