A "sea of olive trees" washed by two seas: it is not this perhaps the Puglia? Millions of green leaves and silver-stain the region, in particular the Salento. In addition to representing the true identity of this land, the olive tree is also, thanks to the care of the man, one of his best friends and allies, in view of the excellent and increasingly sought after production of olive oil. Several laws have been enacted in recent years, to protect, to take care of and enhance the value of this living heritage of inestimable value.
