centuries old  olive tree
Two hundred years before Dante Alighieri, four hundred years before Shakespeare,
this tree was already there, right where it is today

A beautiful park of centuries-old olive trees near Villamassargia (Sulcis, southern Sardinia) called S'Ortu Mannu and declared a Natural Monument. Here in all its splendor "Sa Reina", the largest and most beautiful tree of this garden: the base has a perimeter of more than15 meters, and a millennial age. The trunks of the olive trees are each a beautiful natural sculpture: small or large cracks, contortions,  twirls, twists, curls look like the signs that life has left on the character of every human person.
The park is common, but the usufruct of individual plants remained the old families that once owned the land: each plant has a number plate,  which refers to the family by the right of olive harvest. Each family is responsible for the care of the plant in usufruct.
