Aterraterra

Aterraterra is a multidisciplinary project that combines sustainable agriculture and artistic and activist practices. It was founded in 2020 by Fabio Aranzulla and Luca Cinquemani. Aterraterra develops eco-sustainable ways of growing and multiplying seeds of ancient and rare vegetables, both local and from other parts of the world, respecting plants and other forms of life. The cultivation practices of Aterraterra focus on the protection of biodiversity, food education and farmers’ rights. Moreover, they attempt to question the narrative constructions around food plants, also by highlighting their past, which is often rooted in identitarian issues, racism and colonialism. For Aterraterra cultivation must go hand in hand with political thought and artistic practices. Some collaborations activated in recent months include those with the director Clementine Roy, with the Summer School of Caff√® Internazionale Palermo, with the artist Luigi Coppola, with the cooperative Valdibella, with the Summer School Difficult Heritage (Royal Institute of Art Stockholm & University of Basel), with Relais Culture Europe, Studio Rizoma, the Tunisian filmmaker Habib Ayeb, the chef Mauricio Zillo and with many other farmers, activists and artists.¬†
