The history of this renowned company begins towards the end of 1800, with Renzo Barbera, which, at his estate of San Lorenzo ai Colli, delighted to cultivate citrus and olives. In 1894 Renzo transformed his passion for the land into a thriving activity, until in 1910 was called to Government Salandra. The activity passed into the hands of his son Manfredi, who showed great entrepreneurial skills, giving immediate boost to the company: demonstration of this development was the awarding of two gold medals with oil of Barbera at the inauguration of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Afterwards, the innovative capacity of Manfredi senior (son of the first Manfredi) was not slow to come forward and became the first to pack glass oil. At that time, the companyHe delivered his oil tyrrhenia navigation and the catering Manager asked his grandfather Manfred of think of Cruets for the restaurant. The input was immediately seized, Manfredi found in Murano great artisan cruet to use for its precious oil. It was a great success! Since that time the company made the oil exclusively in glass bottles and cans. The old Wineskins were things of the past. To assist the young Lorenzo's father, said Renzino, eclectic and genial personality. Great poet, passion inherited from the family of mom Carolina Natoli, grows mixed between words and oil. But in fact he had such fantasy: Manfred senior in years ' 60 economic boom develops another novelty for the company, "the oil must". Shortly thereafter becomes international referee for designation of COI (International Olive Oil Council). Today the company is owned by Manfredi junior and Grandpa resembles in appearance and character. He was an industrialist capable of conceiving the modern factory, but with a visceral attachment to tradition. His heir has insight that you need to move into foreign markets where oil is as good as the Sicilianmust be exported.
