Penso che il vero compito di un concorso non sia regalare medaglie ma assistere i produttori in un percorso di crescita serio e professionale. Maria Paola e il suo Leone d'Oro lo fanno egregiamente.

The extra virgin olive oil

The history of olive oil is intertwined with human history like few other stories.
Knowing it often means following our steps and discovering the territory in which we have moved them.

Legend has it that a dispute arose between Athena and Poseidon over the dominion of Attica. The father, Zeus, decreed that the challenge would be won by
who would offer men the most useful gift. Poseidon, god of the sea, offered a splendid war horse, while Athena warrior goddess but also goddess of wisdom, planted her spear on the ground from which a new tree was born: the olive tree.
It was Athena and her olive tree that prevailed: how to beat, in fact, the olive and its juice that nourishes and heals the body, heals wounds and diseases and illuminates buildings and houses?
