Poggio ai Santi

“Poggio ai Santi” is a splendid 19th-century Tuscan farm, transformed and adapted for the purpose of offering
marvellous farm holidays ("agriturismo") and also Bed and Breakfast. Situated in the district known as the "Alta 
Maremma" or High Maremma, between Livorno and Grosseto, “Poggio ai Santi”, offers all the classic Tuscan
attractions but also looks out over to the sea. The hill dominates the beach which is only 4 kilometres away,
and in the distance can be seen the Isle of Elba, Corsica and some islands of the Tuscan archipelago.
"Poggio ai Santi" also has Bed & Breakfast apartments, and offers agriturismo.

We have chosen to place our oil under the aegis of the double trademark of Protected Geographical Indication
and Organic. As you will be able to verify, it is very rare to find Tuscan olive oils that carry both guarantees. This
choice of ours is based on the fact that Community regulations do not prevent an olive oil pressed and/or bottled
in Tuscany or in Provence from containing with a considerable amount of oil derived from olives coming from
Sicily, Greece or the Maghreb. This possibility is widely exploited by the larger brands. It is therefore useful to
know which brands guarantee their origins. These facts also explain the difference in price between one oil and
another. Our price direct from the producer to the consumer is 15 Euro a bottle. Dal greco piacere, godimento, è, in senso generico, ogni dottrina che pone il piacere, comunque inteso, a norma e fine ultimo dell'attività umana, facendo in esso consistere il valore stesso del bene morale. L'edonismo è un derivato nel campo etico dell'empirismo gnoseologico: negata infatti alla conoscenza umana la possibilità di raggiungere, oltre i fatti d'esperienza, valori d'ordine spirituale assoluto (Dio, anima, bene, ecc.), ne consegue logicamente l'impossibilità, o, quanto meno, l'inopportunità di porre questi supposti valori a fondamento e norma della vita morale e della felicità; ed è facile sostituire ad essi il criterio immediato e concreto della soddisfazione, piacere, godimento che le singole azioni sono in grado di procurare all'individuo. Edonismo, questo, in senso proprio, distinto da altri sistemi etici affini come l'eudemonismo e l'utilitarismo.
