The Olive tree – L’albero di ulivo

Olive trees don’t just dot the landscape in South, Italy; they define it.  

It is an evergreen tree or shrub native to the Mediterranean. The olive is considered often a symbol of abundance, glory and peace. The leafy branches of the olive tree were ritually offered to deities and powerful figures as emblems of benediction and purification, and they were used to crown the victors of friendly games and bloody wars. Over the years, the olive has been the symbol of peace, wisdom, glory, fertility, power and purity.

The olive’s fruit, also called the olive, is of major agricultural importance in Italy in the production of olive oil, getting one of the most important ingredients in Mediterranean cuisine.

The artist grew up into the olive tree field, tasting the olive oil as part of his culture, “Olio extra vergine di Oliva”, is part of the daily life -“I cannot live without Extra Virgin olive oil from my area, in my Pasta Aglio&Olio, or for my bruschetta. I cannot compromise on this.”- said the artist.

This artwork is the celebration of his origin, prosperity, health, wellness, abundance and food.
