The training meetings, demonstrating the solidity and reliability of the project, represent the necessary requirements for the completion of the certification process provided for by the Diversity Ark Disciplinary.


Founded in 2022 by agronomists Stefano Amadeo and Stefano Zaninotti, Diversity Ark fits into the panorama of agricultural certifications as a real revolution in this area. In fact, it approaches agriculture with a new philosophy of thought, proposing a holistic vision that aims to fully protect the biodiversity present in the field, preventing the ecosystem from being irreparably altered by human intervention.
The name itself is a declaration of intent: “Ark symbolizes a clear reference to Noah's ark, the first positive example of safeguarding all living species, men and animals, and in our case also plants. The certification mark, applicable on the label, reflects precisely this vision. For life to continue to run its course, everyone's survival is necessary, each organism is indispensable for the balance and life of all the others."
