In 1990 Mauro Checcoli engineer bolognese and Olympic gold medalist (Tokyo, 1964), along with his family, bought from a pastor the ruins of the Abbey of San Giusto in Tuscania, a Cistercian abbey founded in 1146 in a state of neglect by more than six centuries. They immediately decided to revive it by engaging in a difficult and a bit 'crazy path of excavation. Restoration and reconstruction began in 1994, and is now nearly completed. Today the Abbey of San Giusto is an organic farm that produces eco-friendly essential oils, but is primarily a multi-purpose and multi-faceted place designed to accommodate travelers, artists, nature lovers and art. This magical place yet for many, as for those who chose then, is a unique setting, where the work of man and nature come together in a pristine valley between the river, fields of lavender, and olive trees.
