SabinaThe area called Sabine extends from the banks of the Tiber river towards the Apennines and it is located at approximately 40 kilometres north-east of Rome. The landscape has remained unchanged over time. It is characterised by hills covered with olives trees and stretching towards the mountains, with oak forests, lakes and springs.
The Sabine played a key role in the birth and development of ancient Rome, giving birth to prominent historical figures who made the Empire. It was also crucial in the development of Roman civilization. The Sabines were important and powerful people, lovers of justice and honesty. They attained great prosperity thanks to their proximity to the Tiber river and the Via Salaria, which were important lines of communication and facilitated relationships with other populations and commercial traffic.
Rich in history and culture, over the centuries the Sabine has maintained its agricultural vocation, specialising in the production of extra virgin olive oil. The oil tradition is attested by Roman writers and mentioned by Galen and Virgil in the Aeneid. The one thousand-year old olive tree of Canneto also bears witness to this tradition.
