As every work of art, even the oil of Trevi
has its museum found in the Complesso Museale of St. Francis,
where has been realised for the first time in Italy and in Europe a
permanent public show about oil and the olive. The museum has been conceived
dividing the exposition spaces in four different sections, where there
are parts related to the botany and devotes to the knowledge of the
oil and the olive, passing then to the symbolic aspects of the olive,
particularly those about the peace, finishing with the history of the
olive. Inside the museum there are various experiences linked to the
oil that can be consumed. It's possible to taste various typologies
of oil to understand its differences, printing recipes prepared by famous
chefs that exalt its taste, or to verify the characteristic Royal of
the oil sectioning in the chemical laboratory.
Besides, the show exposes different archaeological finds linked to the
civilisation of the oil.
Whoever was curious and has the wish to explore in less superficial
way the themes of the culture of this plant, the olive, and of this
product, the oil, so diffused in Umbria and in the whole peninsula,
cannot avoid to visit the Museum of the Civilisation of Trevi Olive,
precious point of reference for the close examination of themes that
escape from the simple local gastronomic culture.
