Pomegranate

Why did we choose at Casina di Cornia the pomegranate as a symbol?

It is a plant that grows very well here, in the spring the flowers are beautiful, and at the beginning of the winter its fruit are colouring the bushes, its design is easy and expressive, but it is also an antique Mediterranean fertility symbol, once you open the fruit it is full of juicy seeds.

All these aspects make it particularly adapted to represent our philosophy of respecting the land, along all the production processes we search to preserve or improve the earth fertility, and also working on the aesthetic side of the landscape.
