A project born from the desire to create the first educational, productive and recreational urban agro-ecosystem of Naples with high sustainability, in a historic museum site of the highest quality.
Stufa dei Fiori
Stufa dei Fiori, a small body of a factory leaning against the Casino dei Principi, an ancient greenhouse used for the reproduction or shelter of species, especially flowering, that needed a more temperate climate in the winter season.
It is an ancient royal orchard with adjoining a turreted farm, a treasure trove of agro-biodiversity, it is a very precious place for its historical value and for the botanical rarities it hosts. Located on the north-eastern edge of the forest, between the valley of Miano and Capodichino, remains the only evidence of productive garden among all the Bourbon sites that, in addition to being places of leisure and enjoyment, had to self-sustaining and generate profit. Probably pre-existing to the foundation of the royal site, fruit and vegetables are still cultivated today. The first fruits and the most precious fruit were reserved for the royal table. In addition, many varieties of flowers were cultivated, also reserved for the Reggia, in fact the garden was attached to a nursery (fruit from below) at the service of the forest.
