First of all some thematic events have been planned: the first one, “Sant’Erasmo: a vegetable garden between land and sea”, devoted in particular to the local typical agricultural products, for the island has traditionally been considered the vegetable garden of Venice, is going to be held on Sant’Erasmo island, in the Northern Lagoon of Venice. During this event, suitable exhibition stands will show the products coming from the vegetable gardens of the island, so that visitors can taste special dishes prepared with local products (such as the violet artichoke). A further meeting is to be held on San Servolo island, whilst the closing conference is going to take place on Burano island. The initial study activity aims at preparing a publication and a CD-rom (“Products of the Venetian Lagoon”), enclosing a thematic map which will highlight the lagoon areas known for some typical vegetables.
