the same olive fragrance that has been poured down the hills for centuries,
a fragrance rich in life…
“I have long contemplated this old olive tree
grown in dry land
bent and dug by the mistral wind
shaken by storms and burned by the scorching sun.
However, laden with fruit, it gives fragrant oil
as who after a hard life still lives
giving confidence and creating hope”
(Padre Enzo Bianchi)
“And life is so strong that it crosses walls to be seen.
Life is so real that it seems impossible to have to leave
it. Life is so great that when you’re about to die,
you’ll plant an olive tree,
still convinced you’ll see it bloom.”
