The activity is to the recovery and processing of granite scraps, as an ornamental stone, accumulated on the slopes of Mont’Orfano and Monte Camoscio from century-old activities, now abandoned. The reclamation of such dumping grounds leads to an improvement of the safety conditions of the site and improves the visual perception of the places.
Our first intervention involves a general reshaping of the slopes, followed by their revitalization. Given the strong gradient, we implement special planting techniques, such as "enhanced" hydroseeding, using grass seeds with strong gripping power, along with earthworm humus, fertilizer, mulch and adhesive. In the steepest areas, where planting is problematic, we create pockets in the rock, where we place fertile soil on which to plant vegetable adapted to life on the cliff edge.
From the mines of Mont'Orfano one can enjoy a picturesque view of Lake Maggiore. This dominance facilitates birdwatching. A hundred species of migratory birds and rare species can be observed among those nesting, including the blue rock thrush (Monticola solitarius) and the Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus).
