Museo dell'Olivo e dell'Olio

Lonely Planet review

With support from research institutes in Italy and abroad, the Lungarotti family helped organise the Museo dell’Olivo e dell’Olio , which opened in 2000. Contained in a series of medieval houses, the museum traces the production cycle of the olive, displays olive oil accoutrements and documents the culture and use of olives and how they relate to the economy, the landscape, religion, medicine, diet, sport, crafts and traditions.
