I live in Rome since many years and always loved plants, I am an activist and urban gardener and like to share Italian culture with travelers. I am co-founder of Zappata Romana and started the Hortus Urbis project from scratch

About the organisation

Zappata Romana

Zappata Romana founded in 2012 promotes the realization of urban gardens in Rome. We have a mission: empower the spontaneous initiatives of Roman citizens who care about green urban spaces and activate themselves for the common good reclaming abandoned areas. Zappata Romana created and maintains the Hortus Urbis, an educational garden in the Appia Antica Park.

This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Zappata Romana.

Where you'll be

We'll be in our community garden near the sacred Almone river in the Appia Antica Park where history and nature blend together in the first garden with ancient Roman plants in Italy. The recovered abandoned site hosts plants selected from those quoted by Columella, Pliny the Elder, Cato and Pompei.
