Olives on display

 

The exhibition of Fabio Lazzari’s works are part of an integrated project in favour of biodiversity named “Re.Ger.O.P. – Preserving Apulia olive germplasm” and financed by the Region Apulia. This project involves a large number of partners, most prominently Sinagri, a Bari University spin-off.

“The Re.Ger.O.P. project – states Dr. Lazzari – comprises a variety of actions focusing on olive biodiversity, all of which extensively contribute to acquiring, conserving, characterizing and preserving the olive germplasm of this region.”

A Tuscan PGI oil made by Terre dell’Etruria, a farming cooperative society that has invested all it has on its members, expertly helping and guiding them towards quality and success.

Ravioli with Garda extra virgin olive oil stuffing and black olive charcoals

Extra Virgin Garda DOP olive oil’s distinctive traits are its naturally delicate flavor and its elegance. At the taste it can be recognized for harmony or its organoleptic notes and for the light and balanced aromas: the scents of fresh grass, aromatic herbs, hay and artichoke, together with the typical almond aftertaste, make it unique.

The art of healthy eating

The fruit of tradition, care and a passion for quality. Our story starts here, in Puglia. The beating heart of the Mediterranean Sea. This is the birthplace of our oil-making art, an art that has always considered olives as a living body. Video Spot Corporate by Masseria di Sant'Eramo
