Riviera Ligure Dop Experience

Milan hosted the 8th edition of “Olio Officina Festival - seasonings for the and the mind”. The festival, created by oleologist Luigi Caricato, features and array of events, presentations and guided tastings - an effective showcase for the Italian (and international) oil scene.

Olio Officina Festrival 2019 also housed the national premiere of “Riviera Ligure DOP Experience”, a pilot tourism project promoted by the PDO Riviera Ligure Olive Oil Consortium, designed by Ligucibario® and marketed by Volver Tour Liguria.

Through the development of experiential tourism proposals in all the 3 subareas of the PDO (i.e. protected designation of origin), the initiative covers the whole regional arch and focuses on the centrality of EVO as a millenary, skilful production which ideally suits ethno-gastronomic storytelling.

“Riviera Ligure DOP Experience” is aimed at small groups of connoisseur travellers. Visitors – at the same time the protagonists, actors and directors of the experience – are engaged in the creation of their personal EVO travel story: a multimedia report (photo, video, web and social media posting) of their own interpretation of DOP Riviera Ligure olive oil, which will grant them the certificate of "Ambassador" of Riviera Ligure DOP.
The experiences are coordinated and led by senior tourism marketing professionals Umberto Curti (essayist, lecturer and food&wine blogger) and Luisa Puppo (destination specialist, Gourmet English expert and cross-cultural communicator), the founders of Ligucibario®

“Liguria 365 days a year”: the project connects the region’s coastal and inner areas, treasure troves of biodiversity and healthy Mediterranean fare as well as the ideal destinations of quality, sustainable, slow tourism.

The first packages are set throughout the regional arch: “Gold seekers in Lucinasco”, in the province of Imperia; “Archeogastronomy gets web & social in Albenga”, in the province of Savona; “Stories of trees in Lavagna”, in the provinceof Genoa.

A Tuscan PGI oil made by Terre dell’Etruria, a farming cooperative society that has invested all it has on its members, expertly helping and guiding them towards quality and success. The most impressive features of this extra virgin oil, flavour apart, are its remarkable quality/price ratio and extraordinary yield > Luigi Caricato

Ravioli with Garda extra virgin olive oil stuffing and black olive charcoals

Extra Virgin Garda DOP olive oil’s distinctive traits are its naturally delicate flavor and its elegance. At the taste it can be recognized for harmony or its organoleptic notes and for the light and balanced aromas: the scents of fresh grass, aromatic herbs, hay and artichoke, together with the typical almond aftertaste, make it unique. Recipe by chef Carlo Bresciani

The art of healthy eating

The fruit of tradition, care and a passion for quality. Our story starts here, in Puglia. The beating heart of the Mediterranean Sea. This is the birthplace of our oil-making art, an art that has always considered olives as a living body. Video Spot Corporate by Masseria di Sant'Eramo
