In 2008, the third largest agricultural estate of the Mariani company was added. Paolo in fact, for years had been
pursuing the dream of purchasing this prestigious 70 hectare agricultural estate (about 173 acres), located on a hill
in front of the beautiful Medieval village of Corinaldo, just a few steps from the Molino. Since the agricultural
estate was owned by an old noble family who run into financial disaster, it was then auctioned. As for the first time,
Paolo decided to participate to the first auction to prevent any competition thus obtaining the estate at a great price
In 2012, Paolo Mariani, who had already become an agricultural entrepreneur, decided to further expand the
family farm, strongly believing that the only reliable investment for the future is land. Thus, he purchased the
fourth agricultural estate, a 30-hectare hilly land (about 74 acres), located the near Municipality of Montecarotto.
Today, the Mariani farm, together with other smaller land lots purchased over the years, owns over 150 hectares
(about 370 acres) of land all just a few steps from the Molino and under the watchful eye of Paolo!
Family values and traditions combined with the extraordinary potential for the cultivation of wheat in their land,
made the Molino Paolo Mariani more and more solid and competitive in the global market, in particular thanks to
the research and development of new varieties of soft wheat for bread-making and the cultivation techniques
implemented throughout the lands.
However, the achievement of quality is never ending and the family of Paolo Mariani keeps investing its efforts and
resources on the farm to provide to the always more demanding and scrupulous consumers a good, local and low
environmental impact product!
