The Iacovanelli family deserves much of the credit for transforming beekeeping and honey production and in the process turning the area of Tornareccio into the capital of honey in the Abruzzo region.

The ancestor Giuseppeantonio, born in 1858 in the village in the province of Chieti, realized that increasing the production and sale of the "nectar of the gods" would help maintain his family. In 1896 he decided to buy some hives in the nearby village of Villa Santa Maria in order to increase the production of honey and feed his children, whose number increased to five in that year. His decision initiated a tradition that continues up to the present day as the passion for beekeeping and honey has been handed down from father to son in the Iacovanelli family.

Adi Apicoltura as an enitiy was founded in 1982 by Dario, the grandson of Giuseppeantonio; ADI being the abreviation of Apicoltura Dario Iacovanelli. Today his sons Piero and Fabio continue the business which is recognised throughout Italy as a leader in the sector.
