My Master Thesis in Urban Agriculture_Roma Tre University a.a.2012/2013


The thesis develops a research project in  Rome suburbs and it takes account of an area where is expected the edification of 2 new neighborhoods for 4500 inhabitants.
We asked ourselves what might be the fate of this area and after a careful analyses we decided that farming could be reinstated and that part of it could be turned into a public leisure space for the two new neighbourhoods.
Thanks to mathematics we have calculated the amount of farmland required to maintain the two new neighbourhoods based on a mainly vegetarian diet with the use of vegetable fats.

The results show that our area of intervention is sufficiently large to produce all the vegetables and fruit required to meet the diet needs of the 4500 inhabitants.
