The life of the famous agronomist and geneticist Nazareno Strampelli, from childhood to the Rhaetian period, in which the scientist had the opportunity to complete his studies and hybridizations.
Many varieties of Strampelli wheat are still cultivated all over the world, from Europe to America, from Asia to Africa: according to modern geneticists, at least 2/3 of the world's population (over 4.5 billion people) feeds on flour coming directly or indirectly from Strampelli's wheat varieties, which have proved to be highly productive compared to others.
