It is the middle of August and harvesting time in Salizzole, an Italian community about 20 kilometres southeast of Verona. Now, primarily maize is chopped and transported 20 hours a day. The long work days begin every morning with instructions from the farm manager Paolo Cazzola and the staff for the first shift. The boss is sincere and warm towards his workers, but also decided. Paolo Cazzola is not only the boss, but also the heart of the company. He is also the first one to drive to the fields and decide whether or not maize will be chopped that day. The 31-year-old has been working on the farm, which originally was founded by his father and uncle, for 14 years already. He is responsible for the cultivation of their own 1,200 ha farm as well as 4,000 hectares of farmland that they cultivate as contractors.
