Augusta was and is a military port. Now it hosts submarines and Italian Navy but it was a defensive strategic habour during the II world war. This picture is what remains of the German and Italian Bunkers digged under the coastline to defend the city from the British Navy. When the British Warships came at the horizon however the troups retreated and not a single shot was heard from the cannons which were placed on top of the cast iron and concrete platforms. Unfortunately it was not a sign of defeat and peace. The troups retreated on the mountains as they were well aware of the unbalance overseas. The battle of Primosole bridge was extrenous and bloody for both sides as it lasted for weeks till final defeat. Many young soldiers from Germany Italy and Great Britain came here to rest forever. Today they lay on separate cemeteries not far from each others near the ground of the battle. Here in the picture is a part of what you can still experience of that sad moments.

The liquid gold is forged directly from young watered olive trees, safeguarding our citrus groves from the battering cold wind in Winter. The olives are local varieties naturally seeded in volcanic soil spread around for miles and mimes by the Etna during its ongoing striking explosions. For the very curious among you, the cultivar names are nocellara etnea and moresca. Early harvest just by hand and a wooden stair, they are promptly milled in controlled temperature baskets. Cold extracted, they are then stocked in large stainless steel containers and settled for 45 days before they reach the glass bottles. EMail us for your first order and we refund 50% of your purchase on your next holiday at Mulino Primo Passo.
Sounds like the story of my life so far… Such excitement when you get something out of your mind, moving into concept, shaping into reality, then see the customers satisfaction into their smile… And I started my company in 201o and now I am exhibiting at the Sial international fair in Paris next week with my zagara honey, courtesy of happy bees in Sicily citrus groves. Wish me success!
