The legend tells that Lucifer formed the Gulf of Naples stealing a piece of paradise. The tears that Jesus, saddened for the theft, poured onto the volcano graced the earth. Thus the fertility of the soil makes the Vesuvian land fruit an unrivaled fruit and vegetable production area since the most remote antiquity.
Vesuvius: Volcano with thousand delights.
Earth, air and water give here an incomparable taste to agricultural products.
Heart of the Campania Region, the Vesuvius National Park is an area at absolute agricultural vocation and offers one of the widest range of "typical products" in Italy.
At the root of so much wealth there is a lucky combination of ideal soil and climate conditions: first the nature of the soil, dry soil, hilly but mostly volcanic and, so rich in natural minerals including phosphorus, sulfur, and especially potassium.
To complete this miracle of nature there are a mild and sunny climate, beneficially influenced by the breezes of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Close to the most beautiful gulf in the world lies the fertile countryside of the peninsula, the "Campania Felix" that was garden and vineyard of Imperial Rome.
Bordered on the west by the extraordinary volcanic landscape of Campi Flegrei, on the east by the flowery terraces of the Sorrento Peninsula, the most fertile area of Vesuvius, from the remotest antiquity, can boast an unrivaled fruit and vegetable production.
