” This particular variety of asparagus was generated from the same land that gave birth to Verde de Saliceoli, called Donna Verde, Mother of Cangrande Della Scala, made the seed of a great dynasty sprout, giving birth to one of the most famous members of the Scaligeri , the powerful lords of Verona who governed it for 125 years.
We know that the spirit of Donna Verde pervaded the Verona castle located in Salizzole.
According to some testimonies his soul would not have left the walls of this medieval complex yet.
The Divine Comedy indicated his son Cangrande as a valiant and powerful Lord, and he wished he could achieve Italian unification, as Dante so longed for.
It is known from the sources that he gave shelter and protection to the poet during his exile in Verona and that the latter to correspond to the benefits received, gave him the sublime canticle of Paradise.
The figure of Cangrande is generally compared to that of the “veltro”, the mysterious character evoked by Virgil’s prophecy in Hell; it was said that Cangrande was destined to drive the she-wolf-avarice from Italy and to restore its justice.
It is a hope of rebirth, nourished by the poet Dante, which has its roots in the nobility and grandeur of Donna Verde.
In imitation of this gracious domination, we cultivate the seed of a noble production on the fertile soil, in expectation of a renaissance of quality. “
