Torre Venturini is located in the Tiber valley, which has been a thriving agricultural land for thousand of years, starting with the Etruscan, via the Roman ad all the more recent civilizations up to this day.
In this area the mechanization introduced in the 60s has emptied the more traditional rural dwellings and our project aims at merging an approach to agriculture which is sympathetic to natural cycles and follows organic procedures with a modern re use of the traditional rural buildings.
The farmland can be enjoyed by visitors and residents alike and comprises farmed organic fields, wetlands and forest. Wildlife is incredibly rich and it is not unusual to meet wild boars, foxes, porcupines and hedgehogs as well as dragonflies, damselflies and glowworms, sadly nearly extinct in central Italy.
Torreventurini is a splendid base for a number of cultural and sport activities. Just jump on your bike, car or put on your walking boots and explore. If you do not feel like venturing too far, you can simply set off to discover the farm land and its forest and river on foot, in one long walk or several shorter ones.
