WONDER BEE

In 2020 we organized the Wonder Residenza with the designers Davide Tagliabue and Carlo Roccafiorita for the design of Wonder Bee – a hybrid space of connection and exchange between man and nature, a micro-architecture to be built with the hands starting from a great vision of sustainable development .

Today in Grottole we carry out a new project that combines innovation, sustainability and slow tourism.

Wonder Bee will be a structure that will allow the breeding of bees to be combined with the beneficial properties that derive from it for the community and tourists, developed thanks to the concept of Rocco Filomeno, beekeeper from Grottole.

Wonder Bee will be a wooden structure surrounded by hives intended for the production of honey. This system will also allow you to benefit from apitherapy, a wellness path made of scents and sounds and to study the behavior of bees, promoting the defense and discovery of these animals so precious for the survival of the entire ecosystem.

Wonder bee will be an observatory on the world of bees, an educational classroom open to schools and families. The apiary will also be a place to raise awareness of the importance of biodiversity, ensure food security, promote sustainable agriculture, combat climate change, pollution of agroecosystems and promote innovative methodologies for environmental monitoring.

On 25 October, thanks to the support of the Funder35 call, a crowdfunding campaign (a participatory system of “bottom-up financing”) was launched, with the aim of creating the first prototype of the project, as a resource for the territory but also as a study test for the construction of an integrated apiary, to be reproduced also elsewhere.

Thanks to over 180 supporters we reached our goal and raised € 10,171

Now we are looking for the right location to place Wonder Bee.

Follow us – we will update you step by step and we are waiting for you in Grottole to build the apiary together.

Thanks to our WONDER BEE supporters!
