About claudia Morace
My name is Claudia Morace. I am 74 and I live in Chianti I was not raised in the country, but I have always loved nature and consider myself a child of the forest and the sea. I was born in Naples after the war to an Austrian mother and a Neapolitan father. My mother was the only survivor in her family where they had all been victims of the Holocaust. Her family disappeared and became ashes in the wind. With her marriage to my father, she said, that he literally saved her life. For my mother, I was the reason to keep living and I was the anchor that helped alleviate her guilt of surviving those horrible times. I led a normal family life in our home near the sea in Naples, and summer in the mountains at my mother's family home. At 19 I met the man who would change my life and it was love at first sight. We married when I was 23 and we had three wonderful children. My husband was a great sailor and from him I learned to enjoy long sailing trips, the wind through my hair, the magic of a starry sky. We had it all. In 1993 we celebrate 25 years of marriage in our summer home in Ischia. It felt like nothing could spoil our fairy tale. Sadly, two years later after a routine procedure, we received terrible news. An inoperable cancer was found. We fought it and strongly believed we would prevail, but after 7 months my husband passed away. Our world ceased to exist and we were breathless with grief. There were very difficult years, but life must continue and I had to be strong for our children. They grew up, married and moved away. To day I have 8 wonderful grandchildren. After many years I re-connected with a dear old friend who had also lost his wife. We shared so many memories. We met in Chianti. The beautiful hills of Tuscany warmed our souls and we decided we would start a new life together among the olive groves. We purchased an old farmhouse surrounded by an ancient rose garden. I sold my mother's home in Austria and I bought the two apartments in Florence.
claudia Morace purchased this apartment in 2003
Why claudia Morace chose Sant' Ambrogio
The farmhouse had two hectares of olives, but the grove had been completely abandoned for a very long time. The farmhouse and the apartments in Florence had to be restored. It was 2003. I discovered a new energy and life force. I wanted to bring the beautiful estate back to life, and to make of the two apartments a place where my guests could enjoy peaceful days, unforgettable holidays. I also fell in love with the olive grove and decided to create a very special extra virgin olive oil. I took several different courses and studied diligently : It has been an incredible learning curve, but I continue to learn something new from each mistake and gain. I listen to the wisdom of the local farmers and know I still have so much to learn. It has been a long road and so much work. I experienced a wonderful way of life and enjoyed the day to day adventures sharing life between Florence and Panzano. From our house in Chianti I look over the hills at the changing seasons. Spring brings the rose garden to life, summers are scented with the perfume of thyme and lavender. The sunsets illuminate the olive groves with silver brilliance.. The autumn brings the oil and the grape harvest and lastly, winter brings us close to the fireplace watching the cypresses bend in the wind. It is a time to rest. Some days I glance far away on the horizon and I see a sailing boat in a strong wind. I feel this wind from the ocean as it mixes with the wind blowing through our olive groves breathing its life into our trees and surrounding us in peace.
