The biggest energy farm in Europe
G.C. PARTECIPAZIONI, with 147 hectares of greenhouses, of which 85 can be found in Candela (Fg), is today an agricultural reality of prime European importance located in the south of Italy. An avantgarde agricultural reality, thanks to the use of cogeneration, the implementation of innovative solutions for water usage and the use of integrated pest management.
The company produces green, succulent and seasonal pot plants provided with MPS-ECAS environmental certification.
A rainbow spanning half a century of history
G.C. PARTECIPAZIONI started up more than half a century ago, thanks to its founders, Paolo Ciccolella and his wife Nina, who had a dream, to spread a rainbow over a country emerging from the drabness of the War. In 1960 Paolo and Nina built a small wooden greenhouse in their vegetable patch in front of the cemetery in Molfetta (Puglia, Italy), in which they planted the very first roses, chrysanthemums and carnations. This work bore its fruit very soon, picturing a rainbow before their eyes. This sight recurred again and again over three generations.
Made in Italy and global vision
Today G.C. PARTECIPAZIONI is a family company with a managerial and market-oriented approach, proud of its history and its being Italian, geared to growth with a clear global vision.
Pioneers in energy efficiency applied to agriculture
Eco sustainability is one of the most important aspects that modern agriculture will have to face in the coming years and our company is committed to this.
As a matter of fact, in 2004 our company signed an agreement with an important energy partner for the use of the waste energy of their power stations in order to heat our greenhouses.
Thanks to this agreement, today we are able to produce on a large scale with the use of our Green Technology in order to sustain large promotional sales campaigns on a global level.
Business development: customized crops on a large scale
Our company is available to perform large-scale plantations in accordance with the specific requirements of the operators and using our Green Technology.
