Vazapp is a rural hub designed to accommodate young people sharing knowledge, ideas, projects, and passions about agriculture and tourism. It has supposed the creation of young farmers communities to experience technological and organisational innovation adopted at a social level. A typical Vazapp’s modus operandi is the promotion of events called “conta-dinner” (a neologism derived from the terms “contadino”, that is the Italian word for ‘farmer’, and “dinner”) for relationships creation. Future projects focus on resources sharing, knowledge platforms, and ethical purchasing groups.
