The history

Cesare Antonio Benito and Ugo brothers breeders of horses and buffalos in the Salerno zone in consequenze of the Second World War and the disembarking of the american forces were forced to abbandon their farm of their father to transfer to Caserta in the Torre Lupara zone. The transfer of the animals was difficult and dangerous: during three adventurous journeys about 3oo herds were transfered from Salerno to Torre Lupara with the help of only horses. After intensive work of reclamation and land improvements, the Iemma brothers founded 3 baffalo agricultural-zootechnical farms: "Il Mulino" of Cesare Iemma, "Ischitella" of Antonio Iemma and "Torre Lupara" of Ugo Iemma. Ugo Iemma was the first person in the world to have the idea, after turning the buffalo milk in mozzarella, ricotta, provola, and butter, to put this products in the modern commercial.

He also introduced new methods in nourishment of the buffalo and imported from America new machinery the fodder-cutter, for the cultivation of maize (corn) allowing the farmers to conserve large amounts of maize in silos. In 1970 after receiving the request of mr Pablo Moser who later became the president of the Buffalo World Association in 1997, mr Ugo sent 700 buffaloes in Venezuela.
