Olive oil is still considered sacred in many parts of the world and is widely used in religious ceremonies. An Olive Branch has long been considered as a symbol of peace, and the Romans used an olive wreath as a symbol of victory. All in all, over many thousands of years, the olive tree has symbolised peace, wisdom, glory, fertility, power and purity.

The cultivation of olive trees in Italy is thought to have started in Sicily around 700BC. From there, they spread across Italy and were well established in Roman times. Pliny the Elder wrote about an olive tree growing in the centre of the Roman Forum. The oldest known olive tree in Italy is in Sardinia. Known as 'The Ozzastru' in the Sard language, it is reputedly nearly 4,000 years old.
