“Campo Libero_the hemp project” envisions a short chain production of Italian hemp fiber, de-signing a mobile fibre extracting machine, designed specifically for the province of South Tyrol.

The mobile machine may be moved further in another province adapting itself according to the context and through its products materializing and communicating the identity of the place.
