We are a small family of 3: Antonugo, Lorenza and our son Gianluca. We moved from Milan to Sicily about 11 years ago and now run an olive farm with a seasonal B&B. We are all busybodies and enjoy eating very much. We like reading, music and movies. From time to time my sister Francesca comes and visits and gives a hand.
