THE STORY OF GIANNETTOLA Our grandfather Riccardo, heart of a lion, great pioneer of agriculture, loved the land more than his own life. When he went to the camp, in 1944, and saw it strewn with the horrors of war, he did not hesitate to go and mine that land battered by bombs and soldiers who had lost their lives in the last battle under a ruin gripped by brambles. It was so dramatically that for him, insightful and strong-willed, rescuing it from destruction and death, he began the adventure of reclaiming a soil that would soon flourish with man's work: here is the plow tilling the earth to give birth to the blondes swaying in the wind, and for the vineyard that saw a young branch marry the earth every day. Giannettola is now redeemed, and for more than seventy years she has been the one who, like a fairy tale, speaks to us of the perennial rebirth of life. What a God. Bless her fruitful fruit! A few years later, when his lands were all lush and the grapes overflowed from the branches, his grandfather decided to have a bizarre white construction built that rose upwards, and which we all called "the tower". It was for him like an observatory from the sky, to extend the eye beyond his possessions to the horizon of the sea. For all those who visited it, family and friends, it has always remained a meeting point of satisfaction, on which you climbed out of breath for its steep steps, and a coveted destination to go and breathe the breeze of the wind and the sunsets that Giannettola offers from up there to its visitors at 360 degrees or the fragrant dawn glow for the bravest early risers. Our Turret, a symbol of the elevation of the soul on our beloved lands, will always remain a myth and a gentle fantasy with a slightly legendary flavor.
