FOOD & WINE: OLIVE OIL MUSEUM, Cisano.

A tribute to the olive tree and its oil

From rural handicraft to industrial technology: this is the leading thread of the Olive Oil Museum. An ancient, powerful lever press, millstones, screw presses and a reconstruction of a 19th century water mill are the highlights of this exhibition, also enriched by historical documents and teaching equipment. A celebration of oil and olive trees, two peculiar elements in the history and civilisation of Mediterranean peoples.

VIDEO GUIDES: they show how the machinery on display works and narrate the oil history of Lake Garda and the Mediterranean Sea (Italian, English, German, French, Dutch)

GROUP VISITS: Group visits with the assistance of our personnel, only upon booking and upon payment
