In the heart of Umbria
Our story begins in the centre of Italy.
In a hilly area, located in the ideal quadrilateral bordered by Todi and Spoleto, Foligno and Assisi - places that immediately suggest a thousand-year history of culture, tradition and spirituality.
And it derives more precisely from the land that surrounds a small ancient village on the hills of Colli Martani, a few kilometres away from the town of Giano dell'Umbria.
This is the village of Villa Macciano - where our family has resided for generations.
This is where my early childhood memories were created, where I spent all my summer holidays. Where I learned to feed on healthy and uncontaminated products which that land offers us relentlessly, since the oldest of times.
Because being Umbrian means having unique and natural food traditions, traditions that have been passed on to me directly by my grandparents, which have allowed me to live in a healthy and balanced way by adopting simple and natural cuisine, using only seasonal products.
Our quality has deep roots
The olive tree of Macciano is the best representation of our history and our roots. I remember when we used to hold hands with friends when we were kids and hugged him, clutching at his trunk, then running around happily. Even today we still hold on to him with friends who come to Macciano and feel his energy.
Today this thousand-year-old olive tree, standing majestic and guiding the younger olive trees, embodies my project. I respect it, I admire it, I take care of it.
As Janus did, the Macciano’s olive tree looks back and forward at the same time.
