During the year of 1950,Angelo Laneve, a 26 years old man native from Martina Franca, decided to move to Contrada Vagone, in the countryside of Monopoli.
In this place, Angelo founded his family and, as per consequence, started to work in these lands.
Here, there was some secular olive trees, Ogliarola and Simone, that guaranteed a sufficient quantitative of oil for the family’s needs.
In 1990, he decided to increase his own production of oil and he implanted cultivar trees of Picholine.
Angelo was not alone! Every day, a child was always next to him, like a shadow.
This child was truly curious and never stopped asking questions.
He was really happy when he ran among the trees or playing free as the wind creeps through the leaves.
At the end of the day, tired but happy, he gets back to his grandfather, whom he was always under the shade of a tree. Once on his knees, Angelo began to tell to his grandson, a beautiful story of this rural life.
Story after story and day after day, this little boy started this rural life made of simplicity, genuineness and especially surrounded from a truly unit family.
With all those aspects and all the stories of his grandfather, the love and the respect for the nature started to ignite in him.
