Losing yourself in immensity is the definition that perhaps best describes the feeling that you feel passing throught a such open landscape, with rare trees. You might think desolation is mistress, in this inhospitable domain of the "agricultural industry", but this landscape actually has very ancient origin: the immense Roman latifundia, born in the lower Empire and continued in the immense noble historical rural estates. The "crete viterbesi" host a variety of living communities adapted to the open environment and embrace the remains of the Etruscan civilization that has dominated here for almost 5 centuries.
