Coldiretti: in Maremma +15.1% of businesses under 35

In the province of Grosseto, there are currently 542 agricultural enterprises run by people under 35, the highest number among all Italian provinces. This success is largely due to the “Tuscany model,” which boasts the highest number of multifunctional businesses nationwide, as many as 1,230 in total (28.4 percent of the total). These enterprises, in addition to their main agricultural activity, engage in various related activities, such as agritourism, contract services, alternative energy production, product processing or social agriculture. In addition, 25.9 percent of young entrepreneurs have a bachelor’s degree or diploma, compared with 12.4 percent of farm leaders over 40 years old.

These characteristics are also found in the Maremma region, but we cannot overlook the urgent need to facilitate and accelerate the process of “generational change” in agriculture, which is struggling to materialize, even in Maremma.

In the next three years, about 600 agricultural entrepreneurs will be between the ages of 60 and 64 and eligible for retirement. This phenomenon, known as “senilization,” has also been recognized by Ismea, which has highlighted the difficulties associated with it. This situation calls for a rapid generational transition in the countryside.

The new delegate, Mr. Parrucci, points out that the future of many agricultural enterprises is uncertain because of the difficulty of passing the baton to the more youthful generation.

A city accessible to large urban areas

The city of Grosseto lies on the Rome-Livorno road axis and is connected to the large urban areas of Siena and Florence via the E78.


With regard to the Rome-Livorno axis (the so-called Tirrenica), the Italian government has announced that in 2025 work will begin on upgrading and securing one of the territory’s main road axes, with plans to upgrade, among other things, the Grosseto south-San Pietro in Palazzi section and the central section from Ansedonia to Grosseto.


As for the Siena-Grosseto link, work is under way to upgrade the E78 to four lanes .

The work specifically concerns a section of about 11.8 kilometers and affects the municipalities of Sovicille, Murlo and Monticiano.


The work, for a total investment of 195 million euros, consists of upgrading the SS223 “di Paganico” to four lanes by building a new carriageway alongside the existing one.


Grosseto also has a civil airport (Grosseto Airport-Seam Spa), which currently serves private flights, with a very strong charter traffic of about 1,500 charter flights a year for business and tourist visits.
