THE FAMILY

THE PRIVILEGE OF MY BIRTHPLACE
My first memories of Piaggia are from when the estate was brimming with life and movement – all of the farmhouses were inhabited. We made homemade bread each day, in September we all joined together in the noble chapel for a mass of thanksgiving for the harvest, and all the children went to school at the end of the dirt road: one teacher for all of the different ages who walked to the school each day from Montaione.
In front of the cellars you could find the “botteghe” of Palle the blacksmith and Piccino the carpenter, there were so many families, so many familiar faces…Dino, who we all knew as “the mushroom father”, Goretti the tractor driver, Guido, Corti, Mario the gamekeeper, and Loriana the “fattoressa” who managed the house and welcomed each guest to the villa with pride and passion as if it were her own home. I remember the wheat, the gathering of mushrooms and truffles, homemade jams and jellies, olive oil and wine, products which thankfully all survive and continue to this day. It has been my family’s lifework and commitment to preserve these traditions and keep the estate of Piaggia alive as well as the farm in Vinci, the estate of Dianella, which now has it’s own lifeblood thanks to the many families who work for our company.
