The tomato of “pennarola” it would owe
The pennarola’s tomato contain an importat message about we coud be reflected respect of at environmental impact on a fresh tomatoes that are every day in our refrigerator.
The tomato, has had then an interesting double life: luxury product in the French courts and an humble food in southern Italy, that has developed then the maintenance in jar that has brought to the juice.

Pop icon in the sixties, with Andy Warhol and the Campbell Soup, it has become sign of Italian culture that the colour our flag is called red tomato.
