Our story has distant roots in time and places, a story deeply rooted in the land of an Island in the middle of the sea, far away from all….. It was the year 1949 when Antonio Bonomo and Girolamo Giglio set up their business in Pantelleria. 65 years later, our firm is currently the only company in Pantelleria that is a Farm Holding, a Caper Producer as well as a Traditional Laboratory/shop
- to do our very best to preserve a culture tied to the land and be an example in fostering a culture with its feet firmly planted on the ground and its head and heart looking sky-high
- to invest in the territory in order to keep alive the history and the present of an island that is in danger of forgetting what its real assets are
- to grow, select, respect and offer in the simplest yet most elegant way the raw materials that this harsh land bestows on those who work so hard to earn them
