Love for our land is the story of our family

Historical documents of the Forcella family, dated XVII century, testify that olive trees were, already at that times, cultivated in the family fiefs (estates). In 1924 Giacinto Forcella acquired a domain in Città Sant’Angelo, devoting soon the new property to olive tree cultivation.

In the Sixties, the activity had an impulse thanks to Italo Iannetti, Giacinto’s son in law. Following his researches on olive oil extraction at the Experimental Institute for Elaiotecnica, a national specialized research institute located in Città Sant’Angelo, he directly experimented in his domain the new cultivation and extraction methods, fostering quality as constant target of his activity.
