They say that you don’t get to choose your family, but we chose to stick together, to create something that had our soul, our love, our passion.
Our love story began in 1939, when our grandfather Libero, a cattle trader, bought the Abbey and made it an integral part of his work.
But it was only in the 1970s, thanks to Libero’s daughter, the extraordinary Aunt Nori, helped by her sister-in-law Renata, that L’Antica
Abbazia really began to come to life. It was a small osteria, which after 10 years became a pizzeria, thanks to the strength of these

A future that -we are sure- will continue to be a great love story, ours.
