This month, we celebrate World Olive Tree Day. The purpose of this day is to encourage the protection of the olive tree and the values it embodies, to appreciate its important social, cultural, economic, and environmental significance to humanity.

The olive tree, specifically the olive branch, holds an important place across civilizations. Since ancient times, it has symbolized peace, wisdom, and harmony and as such is important not just to the countries where these noble trees grow, but to people and communities around the world.

Thank you to my father-n-law, Giulio, for showing me how to appreciate this iconic tree (a universal symbol of peace) and its fruit.

In honor of the olive tree, and its richness, we extend an olive branch to the world from Rome.
