Memorandum of understanding signed between the municipality of Isola del Giglio and the Portuguese municipality of Vidigueira

A memorandum of understanding has been signed between the Vidigueira and Giglio Island municipalities, represented by Councillor Walter Rossi and local mayor Rui Raposo, respectively.

This protocol, drafted with the participation of representatives of Iter Vitis, addresses a wide range of issues, starting from the challenges of climate change and international crises to environmental policies that are transforming agriculture into an increasingly heroic enterprise.

“In the context of a general situation with critical overtones,” the signed document reads, “there is a strong need to identify initiatives that can translate into positive prospects. Agriculture thus assumes a major strategic role in responding to these challenges, thanks to evolving technical solutions, among which the innovations of Agriculture 4.0 stand out. These include the optimization of irrigation through the use of sensors, automation for integrated crop management and protection from weather events and pest attacks, and the implementation of technologies such as blockchain to ensure traceability of production. These advances are bringing significant benefits to the modernization of the agricultural sector, increasing crop yields and productivity and, most importantly, culturally influencing the way we perceive agriculture.”

Hence a series of joint actions between the two realities of Vidigueira and Giglio Island.

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.
