The exhibition of Fabio Lazzari’s works are part of an integrated project in favour of biodiversity named “Re.Ger.O.P. – Preserving Apulia olive germplasm” and financed by the Region Apulia. This project involves a large number of partners, most prominently Sinagri, a Bari University spin-off.

“The Re.Ger.O.P. project – states Dr. Lazzari – comprises a variety of actions focusing on olive biodiversity, all of which extensively contribute to acquiring, conserving, characterizing and preserving the olive germplasm of this region.”
