On the farming land where Re Fiascone is grown

This area is a UNESCO Heritage and has a healthy climate thanks to the proximity of the sea and the absence of pollution factors. The tomatoes are grown in a mild climate enjoying plenty of sun and the wind coming from the coast. Moreover this land is very rich and fertile thanks to the peculiar volcanic soil, which can be found in the upper layers of the ground due to the ancient eruptions of the Vesuvio that reached also these area with debris and ashes.
