A Passion for the land

The Olivi family passion and respect for tradition

The idea of the land, the desire to rediscover those natural and simple values was the impulse that led me to buy a farm and some land to create the La Sovana farmhouse.

The History of Olivi Family became in Umbria:
“The history of my family has always been tied to the land, as a child I worked with my father Mario in the Umbrian farms, between Tavernelle and Panicale. Before many others, we purchased tractors and agricultural machinery to work as subcontractors in winter. Even then my father’s wish was to buy a small farm with some lands, but various circumstances prevented the deal. Meanwhile I started marketing petroleum products with my brother h as a family activity. In 1975 I married Giovannella and the following year was born my son Riccardo , in 1978 my daughter Francesca.
Even though still in my head the dream of a land, the desire to live follow a natural rhythms and simplicity. I t was always in my mind the idea of my father, who died at ' age of 66 years, to buy a farm and a bit 'of land. Finally I found La Sovana and when I saw the property, I fallen in love immediately. It was the house I was looking for. In the 1986 La Sovana was born”
