In a prestigious photographic project, “I VOLTI DELL’OLIO” (THE FACES OF OIL), il Maestro Oliviero Toscani will portray the faces of the leaders of the companies that have won an award. It’s an important visual project, which will be published in the guide, and will express, through the faces of those involved, their passion, their sacrifice, and their love of the land. Portraying a face is an art, as is the ability to produce and refine a unique and excellent extra virgin olive oil.
