Not only the value of the territory or of the environment are bounded in the same concept of Italy for which we should be proud.

The VISAGI CORAGGIOSI Farm is situated in Loc. Valle Albertina within
the territory of Farnese (VT), a small town in the northern Lazio region
at an altitude of 360mt above sea level between Lazio and Tuscany. The
volcanic soil lies on the border with the Lamone Forest and the
Saturnia’s Thermal Baths. The VISAGI Farm’s soil is reserved to the cultivation
of the Cultivar Canino Olive Trees, a single-variety which was already
known to the Etruscans and whose characteristics are its thick canopy,
its rustic nature, and its easy adaptation to the terrain. Its fruit
is relatively small and resistant to the separation, it has a belated
ripening period, and the harvest usually takes place in November.
The olive trees are registered with D.O.P. Canino by the Chamber
of Commerce of Viterbo.
The VISAGI CORAGGIOSI Farm has been adopting organic farming since
2008, conforming to the EEC regulation no. 834/2007 and no. 889/2008.
