Wool has been for many centuries a precious material in Italy and in Trentino, before it felt into disuse. This is why the idea of rediscovering the culture of wool and encouraging local production was born. The project, called "Il ritorno della lana" (the return of wool) is promoted by the shepherds'and herdsmen association Libera Associazione Pastori e Malghesi del Lagorai.
The core of the project is obviously Valsugana, the land with the highest number of sheep in Trentino. The program, formed by many stages, will begin with a course with different conferences about the wool world and will continue in 2011 with other activities and with the cooperation of the National Research Center for a recovery plan.
