Celebrate Tradition and Nature with Florence Attaché's Olive Oil Tasting Experience

Updated: Apr 15

Florence Attaché is proud to announce a new cultural and culinary venture: the Olive Oil Tasting Experience, in a refined partnership with the esteemed Gonnelli family, who have been at the forefront of olive oil excellence since 1585. This initiative celebrates the family's heritage through two of their respected estates: Frantoio Vertine and the historic Frantoio di Santa Téa, both exemplars of the art of olive oil production.

In the heart of this collaboration lies our recent engagement with "Unusual Address" at Riva Lofts Florence on April 14, 2024, a noteworthy event where Serena Gonnelli showcased their prized Frantoio Vertine oil.

This event served as a prime opportunity for Florence Attaché to nurture future partnerships aimed at preserving the verdant heart of Florence:

Unusual Address is a distinctive community dedicated to the promotion and protection of Monumental Trees and urban green spaces, a mission they have been pursuing since 2019 with a particular focus on botanical themes. By casting a spotlight on the centenarian trees of the city and private gardens, Unusual Address articulates an extraordinary vision of the natural elements that enrich Florence and Tuscany. They believe that nature is the original and primary work of art, the foundation from which all beauty springs. Together with RAMI, a volunteer organization committed to the safeguarding of monumental trees in Italy, Unusual Address works towards increasing awareness and fostering the protection of these natural treasures.
