Vernazza is a village in the Cinque Terre National Park. The village has had tourist influx since the 60s with a discreet and international tourism, mainly of Germans, French and Americans. The 20/7 is the feast of the village for the patron S. Margherita.
The project is in collaboration with the cultural association Tu Quoque born in the 2013 in Vernazza (SP) i Region Liguria. The association works for the land and the typical landscape conservation of the Cinque Terre through the taking care of them with the traditional knowledge and local culture. In the last years, in particural since 2011, the Cinque Terre were swept away by landslides and floods cause the strongs rains with big damages to the houses and the agricultural grounds terraced cultivated in vineyards and sustained by dry wall. Different farmers abandoned the care of the grounds and the vineyards. Some of these grounds have been given by the owners to the association Tu quoque to preserve the agricultural and historical patrimony of the territory. The project therefore foresees the reconstruction of dry wall of such grounds.
