Rosa and Giovanni on Cilento and the land
The olive tree has defined the Cilento region in Italy for centuries and largely characterizes its immense natural landscape.
Not only, does the cultivation of olives represent a valued resource for many of the communities in the region, for generations they have written the history of this territory, dedicating their lives to the care and agriculture of this land. Ancient origins, vast landscapes and illustrious quotations do not do justice and simply do not fully captivate the beauty of the territory nor the rich history.
The thousands of hectares of land dedicated to olive trees has made cultivation a tradition and has made this area famous for the production of oil.
Century after century, from old school traditions, growing olives in Cilento is the activity that most characterizes this area.
“In Cilento, oil is not just oil. Oil is the earth; it is tradition and it is excellence.”
Rosa and Giovanni on family and tradition
In Cilento, the olive tree is not just a historical or geographical subject: it represents a cultural tradition of individuals, families and the community. Traditions have evolved over time, just as people of the Earth have evolved: olive growing has become a collective ritual. Every year the families of the territory unite, or rather reunite, and share a sacred moment for themselves: the olive harvest.
Rosa and Giovanni on feeling lucky to be from Cilento.
We grew up understanding the feelings of love, passion and union, which our families have handed down for over four generations.“We grew up in complete harmony with nature.
We grew up cultivating olive trees.
We grew up picking olives.
Yes, we were and are lucky.”
