The appointment for the whole family dedicated to the fruits of the forest and to the ancient and forgotten ones is back at the Bosco di San Francesco. An opportunity to spend a day outdoors between walks and workshops. For the occasion Arborea Archeology, which for 40 years has been promoting research on old varieties of fruit plants, proposes a pomological exhibition dedicated to the precious ancient local varieties of good and fragrant fruit and to the many forgotten fruits that can be found in the woods – from berries to wild fruits – beautiful to look at but not edible, which you have to learn to recognize.
