Development, products and people have been and will always be the pillars of CULTIVA
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.
