Agroindustrial hemp can be used as a fibre for fabrics, building material or as a raw material to make paper, oil, soaps, cosmetics, detergents, but also food such as pasta and beer. This production sector is booming in Italy, especially in recent years after the Italian Parliament legislated on its promotion. Therefore, the purpose of this internship is to survey companies that produce industrial hemp in Italy and, in particular, in mountain areas. Data will be stored in a database and processed to create a map of industrial hemp producers.
