July is the month when the sea of pastures that surround Viscri is ripe for harvest. Generation after
generation, the inhabitants of these lands gathered the hay with the strength of their arms and the help
of their animals. Laborious and time-consuming, this ancient practice has ensured the conservation
of an astonishing diversity of wildflowers, including many species extinct in the rest of Europe. It is a
valuable but fragile heritage in need of protection that attracts biologists and enthusiasts among whom
