The Vento di Zeri wind farm is located in the municipality of Zeri, in Lunigiana, on Monte Colombo at an altitude of between 1,100 and 1,300 metres.
On the border between the provinces of Massa Carrara and Parma, the five 2 MW VESTAS V90 wind turbines, with a total installed capacity of 10 MW, are located in an area that is home to beech forests, chestnut groves, mountain meadows of various sizes and pasture.
The local economy is mostly devoted to pasture farming and tourism, thanks to the beauty of the area and the presence of the Zum Zeri ski resort at Passo Dei Due Santi.
On the road leading to Passo dei Due Santi, there is Formentara, an ancient alpine pasture with stone huts which were used to house transhumant shepherds and are now completely uninhabited.
In 2021, Legambiente included the Zeri plant in the ‘Tourist Guide to Wind Farms’.
