Already in the antiquity Educational system common to the Greeks and Romans, in which the vines grow on or between trees (Alberata = sapling). Small mulberry trees, chestnuts, maples, poplars or elms, which are cut back or cut back annually, serve as support. Two to four vines were planted for each tree. This was often used in combination with arable crops. In extreme cases, the vines are raised up to ten meters high. In this case, the relatively time-consuming harvesting must be carried out using ladders. This system is still used in part in Italy today. In the regions Emilia-Romagna. Tuscany and Veneto there are local variations. In Campania this traditional form is used under the DOC provisions for Aversa admitted or enforced as a cultural heritage. The ladders are referred to here as "scale napoletans". See also lists below training system (Systems) and Weingarten Care (Activities).
