Lodano is a small village in the lower part of Vallemaggia, about 15 km from Locarno, at an altitude of 340 meters. A wide valley opens just above the village and its vineyards. Valle di Lodano is home to a large forest reserve with fascinating landscapes, rich with flora and fauna, and filled with testimonies of past human activities. These elements were restored and enhanced thanks to a large interdisciplinary project with a holistic approach. The project led to several landscape improvements as well as historical and scientific research.
