Abstract/Contents:"To welcome the great events of the Jubilee 2000 in Rome, a wide turf has been sowed, able to accept religious and artistic demonstrations for more then [than] 1,500,000 people. The owner of the area, the University of Rome 2 Tor Vergata, put an area of 350 ha (41┬░.86' N and 12┬░.63' E) at the promoters [promoter's] disposal. The area was neglect with unauthorized and occasional cultivation and grazing. The Crop Prouction Department of the Tuscia's University of Viterbo has planned the land reclamation and carried out a turf of 3,200,000 m2 seeding 100 t of a blend of three varieties of Tall Fescue (Festuca arundinacea) and two of Kentucky Bluegrass (Poa pratensis). Seeding was accomplished between September and October 1999 and the resulting turf was used the first time May 1 2000 for the 'Jubilee of the Workers' and then August 19-20 2000 for the 'Jubilee of the Young People' when about 2,000,000 of youths occupied the area for 36 hours. The turf installed and managed according to proper techniques, held out against the human load and has greeted the young people correctly for the night. The Roman turf is, probably, the bigger turf sowed at the same time and used with a 0.7 people per m2 load after only 10 months."
