Magnificent, majestic and poetic. These enormous, ancient olive trees which impart a sense of wisdom and peace, are some of the most precious assets of the Mediterranean culture. They bear unprecedented witness to the enduring power of the cultivation of olives throughout the Mediterranean region and are testament to the dominance they have achieved over the centuries.The growth of centuries-old olive trees does not follow the logical pattern, but instead, according to studies conducted in this field, growth follows the logic of sedimentation, meaning that new growth is grafted onto the old and over time substitutes the original trunk. The history of this plant is rendered even more interesting by the fact that each plant is different from another. Each plant has its own history, each one is an example of the battle for survival throughout the centuries as it follows its own course, being weather beaten by lightning strikes and frost and also in its clashes with man.After exploring and enjoying the town of Spello, there are still more surprises in store.

An alternative to cosmetic surgery!Wrinkles are one of the first and most obvious signs of aging. They are formed by biochemical, histological, and physiological age-related changes in the skin, which are exacerbated by environmental factors such as sunlight, free radicals, and gravity. Over time, displacement and stretching of the skin result in grooves and sagging that are difficult to effectively reverse.These effects may be somewhat reduced through behavioral changes:
However, for more significant anti-aging effects, it is necessary to supplement with cosmetics. Several cosmetic ingredients have shown very effective reversal and prevention of signs of aging:
- Reducing exposure to the corrosive effects environmental factors (especially ultraviolet rays);
- Increasing cell metabolism by ensuring adequate presence of certain Vitamins and Minerals (Vitamins C, E, and K, as well as selenium and zinc, among many others)
- Reducing the activity of facial expressions by selectively relaxing the facial muscles;
- Maintaining skin’s hydration

- Hyaluronic acid – a natural component of skin whose levels decrease with age. A major component of maintaining the skin’s hydration and filling in its tissues, as well as protecting it from UV rays and free radicals.
- Hexapeptide, also known as Agireline – similar to the botulinum toxin (Botox), without the neurotoxic effect. Reduces facial muscle contraction, preventing deepening of existing wrinkles and formation of new ones.
- Extract from microalgae Nannochloropsis oculata, combined with Pullulan, a polysaccharide – contains high levels of amino acids and Vitamins C and B12; stimulates collagen production and protects tissue components against oxidative stress from free radicals.
