Work has begun on the construction of Delta Farm, the innovative and sustainable tourist village created by Human Company, the Florentine group leader in Italy in the open-air hospitality sector, to convert the former Enel power plant in Porto Tolle.
Having completed all the preparatory activities for the presentation of the project and the preliminary environmental analyses, the project is now in its operational phase, developing two main activities simultaneously: the launch of the proposal for a strategic tourism project of regional interest for the urban transformation of the area, which will be carried out in collaboration with local institutions, and the demolition and dismantling of the structures of the former power station that are not functional to the new project, to be carried out by Human Company.
Covering an area of 110 hectares, 30 of which will be woodland, Delta Farm will host various accommodation areas, a multifunctional sports centre with an area for water sports, recreational areas and experiential routes. The territory will also play a leading role, thanks to a visitor centre for the enhancement of environmental and landscape excellences and one for the development of typical fish and agricultural products, accompanied by a high-level food offer.
Combining biodiversity and local excellence, Delta Farm is destined to become a new reference point for the outdoor sector in Europe and a flywheel for the enhancement of the Po Delta in a perspective of circular economy and environmental sustainability.
The project to breathe new life into the former power plant was identified through a competition launched by Enel to find sustainable proposals and entrepreneurs willing to implement them to convert the site and create new value for the territory, as part of the Futur-e programme.
