The following photos represent scenes of the past everyday life in Pruneta di Sopra property. The old farm was managed by the Pioli family : for many years, they lived in the ancient farmhouse and they devoted themselves to the tough agricultural work. The child photographed in many images is Francesco Pioli who was born in that house.
Unfortunately, that building, which was for several years the center of life and work for many people, exists no longer because of the irreparable damages of time. However, where today the barbecue area of the villa stands, there, you can still see the walls of the old stone house .
Francesco Pioli, unlike his parents and grandparents, did not dedicate himself to the farm work but he took the opportunity of the economic growth after the second world war, finding a job in a local factory. Here he met Assunta who later became his wife. Today, Francesco is retired, he lives with his family not far from Pruneta di Sopra, looking after his beautiful vineyard, restoring old tractors and working with Assunta in Pruneta di Sopra property, thus maintaining a strong link with the places where he was born and he grew up.
