Our waters gush from the green heart of the mountains of the Marche, a region distinguished by its diversity, combining a unique variety of terrains and landscapes in one. The words of the writer Guido Piovene best synthesise this peculiarity ‘The Marche Region is a distillation of Italy’. Our springs are located in some of the region’s most extensive and important protected areas.
The Gola della Rossa and Frasassi Natural Park is a full-fledged natural oasis in which typical pre-Apennine flora and fauna are preserved. In a unique development of nature, the karst topography gave rise to an especially charming landscape: over the centuries the Sentino river carved a gorge that descends into a deep, rocky ravine. This is the Gorge of Frasassi, which also offers the amazing spectacle of its underground caves.
The Frasassi Caves constitute a veritable underground world formed by slow, rhythmic dripping of water. Winding through a series of different settings along a labyrinth-like path of more than 13km, they offer visitors a glimpse of a unique wonder of nature. Protected by the Caves of Frasassi, a unparalleled water comes to the surface: light, uncontaminated, with a perfect balance of minerals and trace elements.
On the border of the Monte Cucco Natural Park is the site where another of our springs gushes. Amidst the ethereal hues of the Apennine hills, nature directs her harmonic symphony of green, from which pours forth the gushing purity of San Cassiano water. Nestled in the comforting embrace of the woods sits the venerable Camaldonite monastery, which the Benedictine monks chose as a place of spiritual meditation. It is said that the monks themselves used this water on account of its positive effect on health and wellbeing.
