The success of urban agriculture practices in Cuba and the signifi cant role they have assumed in the development of cities, their environment, the economy and in local communities (Koont, 2009) make it interesting to refl ect on the conditions that have allowed it to spread so rapidly and on such a large scale that it has made this Caribbean Island an emblematic example of experimentation designed to reduce dependency of the economy on oil. These conditions appear to be strictly connected with the particular history and the economic and political affairs of the country.
