Circeo National Park and its territory as you've never seen it. "Linea Verde" is back in the historic Italian Park to film the environments, landscapes, colours, contradictions and potential of a wonderful and varied ecosystem. A diversity of habitats that has no match in Italy: the Promontory and the coastline, along which dunes as high as 27 metres run for 25 kilometres; wetlands where around 300 bird species find refuge; a Biosphere Reserve protected by the Ramsar Convention and UNESCO; the secrets of the "Piscine" and Selva di Circe.
A close look to the coexistence and balance between agriculture and biodiversity in the voice of its protagonists, among water buffalo breedings, conventional and biodynamic agriculture.
Some numbers worth mentioning: 180 DOP, IGP, DOC and DOCG products, 193 products in the Slow Food lists, 289 traditional products according to Ministry Decree 8/9/1999 are produced in National Parks; 276,000 farms (1,432,500 hectares of agricultural land in all) are registered in municipalities belonging to national and regional parks.
During the broadcast, a picnic in one of the Park's special spots will let you know something about the Park's food products of excellence; an evocative section will be dedicated to the Carabinieri Forestry Corps, showing the release of a red kite and a peregrine falcon that have been cured and set free again.
