The olive tree in Apulia, a spell that has lasted for over 3000 years.
It is still the great witness of the Mediterranean people. Each olive tree carries inside, since the time of the myth of Athena, the profiles of its many custodians. These "monuments" of austere and rare beauty of Messapic remembrance, are a clear declaration of love for humanity. In fact, the solemn centuries-old olive tree has become an asset of historical and artistic interest as well as architectural and archaeological. It is said that the passage through the large cavities of its trunks is a good omen. For the people this ritual would serve to ward off unwanted spirits and those who would show hostility to such generous plants. Synonymous with fertility and rebirth, resistance to the ravages of time and war, symbol of peace and value, the Olive Tree represented in mythology, as in religion, a natural element of strength and purification.
From sacred to profane the Olive joined the Gentiles, and gone through the history of mankind.
