La coltivazione dell’olivo in Versilia ha avuto, nel corso dei millenni, un’importanza primaria sia per l'economia sia per il paesaggio della regione. Gli antichi e secolari oliveti rischiano oggi di scomparire in seguito all’urbanizzazione, che sta velocemente riducendo la superficie coltivata. L’iniziativa Davines esprime così il desiderio di contrastare la scomparsa di un patrimonio di varietà genetiche oggi minacciato, eppure essenziale alla vita del nostro pianeta.
