In order to make the most of and help the public know more about the agricultural life of Umbria, the Vecchio Frantoio Bartolomei has created a museum of its own, collecting old machinery and vintage objects regarding the cultivation of olives. The museum is always open to the public. The exhibition provides an itinerary that takes the visitor through the phases of the production of olive oil, from the growing of the olive trees, to the gathering of the fruit, from their processing to the storing of the end product.
In visiting the exhibition rooms, where vintage photographs and illustrations are also on view, the visitor is guided in the discovery of the secrets of a cultivation that goes back to over 6000 years.
Our olive mill proudly displays one of the rare examples of sixteenth-century presses as well as antiques, archaeological finds, curios and machines used up to a few years ago that bear witness to the time-honored devotion and passion of the Bartolomei family for this type of agriculture.
Among the services offered:
- visit to the museum and tasting
- video in two languages (Italian and English) on how olive oil is extracted
- plenty of free parking
- mini-courses on oil tasting
- spacious garden where the visitor can relax, and with a playground for children.
