The gentle Tuscan hills that nurtured da Vinci That raised Galileo to see stars and sun Shower sumptuous fruit with the artichoke eloquence Of Dante's divine lyrical tongue

Raffaello Lippi is an ardent, dedicated grower who committed himself to helping family olive growers in rural Tuscany survive in face of a struggling post-World War II economy. His clarion call:
By joining in cooperatives, small-scale farmers in his region began to regain their livelihood. Today, their collective effort is shepherding the spirit of the Tuscan countryside and the traditional character of its EVOO into the future intact.
Lippi's story was filmed on location in Tuscany, courtesy of the kind owners of La Valentina Bed and Breakfast.
