Agricamping is the preliminary study for the realization of rural camping with a permaculture approach in Salento. Starting from the permaculture -  intended as “a system of agricultural and social design principles centered around simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems” - and from the specific context of an olive field in Salento, a series of design option have been explored in order to provide a basic set of tool to proceed with the design.


In this particular time, in which the Salento is interested from the Xylella Emergency, it becomes important to impact the territory and the landscape with resilient and smart intervention that preserve the ecosystems and promote a deeper awareness of the natural treasure and resources that are still available to the population.
