Discover the story about how two different families have both promoted and contributed to their beloved Corfu island. Count Ioannis Capodistrias, on one hand, who was born to an aristocratic family in Corfu, and would become the first governor of Greece and a successful diplomat to Europe. And on the other hand, the Dafnis family, a traditional Corfiot family that continues to give reputation to the island through their exceptional olive oil-adding to the product's historical importance.
