This way it recites the 13th century Statute of Monteverdi Marittimo, absorbed place in the green, rich of history and traditions and where our farm rises.

The flora, the fauna, the mushrooms, the butterflies, the coleopters, the ferns, the shells and the mineral, are a part (harvests in the manifestos that furnish our lunch room) of the natural attractions that strike the visitor.

All out of an absurd logic of market.
