Siracusa was funded in the 8th century B.C. and boasts extraordinary historical riches: Greek temples, Roman amphitheatres and Baroque architecture. In ancient times it used to be one of the most powerful cities in the Mediterranean region.
Cicero described it as “The largest and most beautiful among Greek cities”; Archimedes, the famous mathematician, philosopher and engineer, lived and died here; Saint Paul as well stayed in Siracusa, and prayed by the church of San Giovanni.
The city has been dominated by the Arabs for two centuries, then by the Normans and the Swabians. All these peoples have left their traces, and in 2005 the whole city has been included in Unesco’s World Heritage List.
We like to think that our lemons are also part of this eternity that surrounds us. We believe that it is important to take care of memories, reflect on the bond between agriculture and consumers, and to keep a genuine relationship between food and agriculture techniques. We grow what we think is the very source of our energy, wellbeing and quality of life. Just like it used to be for those people who have been living here in the last 3,000 years.
