Not only for its size and an ideal location just a few kilometers from the sea, in the municipality of Petacciato (Campobasso), but especially for the visionary management of its founder, the Cavalier Francesco Di Vaira that from the beginning knew how to use cutting-edge techniques.
After his death was his wife to decide the fate of the estate: in 1952 he created a foundation chaired by statute by the Bishop of Termoli-Larino, is entrusting the management, the mission is to train and educate young people to the agricultural profession. Di Vaira Foundation carried on these intentions until 2006, when the council decided to entrust the company to an external structure as it abided by the original purposes.
