Park Rural "Masseria Torre Zuvinu"
A bit of history
The fund Zuin, evolved over the centuries, suffering all the historical events, economic and social that have followed, as well as natural events.
The oldest part is definitely the tower of sight, for the control of the saracens who landed in the nearby beaches of the Ionian sea, around you added patios, barns, housing for apprentices and employees, furnaces, mills, stables, premises for the milling of olives and grapes.
All this was certainly possible since the agglomeration was in a very favorable position both for roads and for the proximity to the fiumara Assi, the latter, one of the most important watercourses in the area.
Later were added other manufactured housing, related to the needs of the “master” to move to the countryside periodically.
The vast olive grovesin the area, led to the construction of the great mill, first operated by water power, and then, in 1924, the hydraulic turbine. The flood of 1951, put on his knees the economy of the place, and Zuin suffered damage to crops and the hydraulic structures that were never rebuilt, because no longer necessary as their function is performed by the electric current.
It has recently been recovered in the historical archives of the firm Truth of Florence, the original design of the mill Zuin, which indicates the changes undergone by the complex, and all the machines that were present.
During the visit to the "Masseria Torre Zuvino", you can visit the plantations of olive groves, vineyards and citrus groves, the museum of the farm and of wine, the ancient watchtower, the hydraulic structures that brought water to gardens, mills, stables, and mills.
