Our history

Cultiva  history  starts in  Chioggia (Veneto region) flies to the USA, makes  a stop in the UK  and Sweden and then goes back to Italy in the new millennium. Boscolo Sesillo family, Cultiva founders, are the first “new world” explorers growing and spreading one of the most typical Italian products: radicchio.

Everything  started  from a  “problem”:  I was  unemployed.  My brothers  and I decided  to continue with  my  father’s job, the farmer: so we expanded the production of radicchio using the skills acquired during my previous experience as export manager in Africa.The key to success has been to be able to transform a need into an opportunity and this allowed us to be where we are now.
