A guide to the discovery of special territories

A guide to discover unique and little-known territories, that are today one of the most interesting laboratories for the energy transition. The idea of a tourist guide for the wind farms in Italy was imagined to give the chance to visit closely these modern machines that generate energy from the wind and to discover some truly beautiful areas, off the beaten track of the more frequented tourist routes.

Renewable sources are the best way to finally free our energy production from dependence on coal, oil and gas, which are responsible for climate change. But an important issue we have to face is how to integrate these sources into the landscape, especially in countries like Italy, rich in cultural and environmental resources.

Wind tourism

The eleven wind farms chosen by Legambiente show that these challenges can be addressed and resolved with the support of local communities and that it’s possible to find innovative and interesting ways to enhance local resources.

The journey through these particular landscapes can be traveled on foot, by bike or on horseback along dirt paths and tratturi, local roads. Already today, tourists and sportsmen, Italians and foreigners, school groups meet along these paths. It is the charm of these large and modern machines to produce energy from the wind inserted between mountains and forests, rolling hills planted with wheat, but also points of observation to wonderful views ranging from the sea to the mountains.

In the pages of the guide you can find all the information on how to arrive at the different places and organise a weekend, on the wind farms and on the routes and tracks that criss-cross through them, suggestions for where to eat and sleep, the more or lesser known places to discover, together with the stories and anecdotes in the descriptions of the areas recounted by Giuliano Malatesta. Many ideas to organize a trip to discover the small town where Sandro Pertini was born, or to visit the one that became famous because of the wind farm, and ended up on the front page of the New York Times, or one of the most famous installations of land art in the world, as well as trails that pass through hystorical sites of the second world war.

Wind parks in the world

Find out what are the wind farms in the world

Visit the page

The website parchidelvento.it is in Italian and English due to the growing interest regarding these wind parks, both onshore and offshore. This guide is the first in the world about wind park tourism. There are many which, from New Zealand to Copenhagen, are visited every day by tourists by boat or on foot, and which are organised to meet the growing curiosity concerning these installations and the changes underway in tourism, of people increasingly in search of new experiences and discoveries.

It is a work in progress, the wind farms will continue to increase over the coming years, and the aim is to present other experiences able to show that the climate challenge can be overcome if we choose a cleaner and distributed energy generation that enhances the different areas, their resources and strengthens local communities.
