Two days of exhibitions, meetings, in-depth analysis dedicated to the world of citrus fruits and their cultivation: the Fai "AgruMI" initiative returns to Milan, realized with the scientific advice of Giuseppe Barbera, professor of Colture Arboree at the University of Palermo.
Experts and growers from Sicily and Campania will bring their experiences, while visitors will see a rich display of plants, but also fruits and products made with citrus fruits. Among the curiosities on display, an extraordinary collection of citrus plants collected over the years by the nurseryman Davide Chiaravalli, among the most complete of the various existing varieties.

The event will be enriched by a round table on the subject of citrus trade, moderated by Professor Barbera, on the one hand to discuss the difficulty that domestic products have on the market compared to trans-oceanic competition and, on the other, to reflect on the issues defense of the landscape and biodiversity.
