THE TRUE STORY OF OUR EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
Did you know that in Liguria “frantoio” is called gumbro? And the first time it was mentioned was the distant 1205.
In Apricale in 1267, for the first time a protection was established for the fruit of the olive which sanctioned anyone who tried to steal it.
The protection of the olive tree derived from the fact that the severe poverty that affected many strata of the population led people to steal and olives were a “simple fruit” both to pick and to eat .
