L'Oliveto Granducale

Walking along the “Olive Road” at Parco della Maremma at a certain point you enter a gate and find yourself in an ancient olive groove. The trees are a couple of centuries old, so I call it the "Oliveto Granducale" (Duke's Olive Groove), from the name of the lord that ruled here in the past.
