L'olio della Serenissima
18 -21 and 26 -28
“Ti co nu, nu co ti” (you with us, we with you). These words still today express the affection of the populations and of the city that once constituted the “Stato da Mar” of the Serenissima Republic of Venice.
Referring to the historic attachment of the Venetian Republic territories, the Olive Park of Cappella Maggiore in the province of Treviso, in addition to enhancing the valuable oil production of its hills, intends to promote with "The oil of the Serenissima" event the valuable production of oils from the territories that included the Veneto-Friuli-Venetian Lombardy inland, the Dalmatian coasts, the Greek islands, Turkey, Crete and Cyprus.
This event aims to bring together the oil productions, to revive the richness of colors and flavors that were appreciated on the tables of the Venetian nobility.
Denis Zanette, president of “La Ruota” Association
Thanks to the event "The Oil of the Serenissima" the Municipality of Cappella Maggiore and “La Ruota” Association intend to enhance and promote the Olive Park of Cappella Maggiore, already included in the wider project of the Thematic-Educational Parks of the Alta Marca Trevigiana, opening up to the consolidated experiences in olive oil production of the cities and peoples who were part of the Serenissima Republic of Venice, as we are.
The Olive Park is designed to let young and old know the excellent quality of local EVO oil, the beautiful landscape of the hills on the Cansiglio slopes which have returned in recent decades to be covered with olive trees and the precious agricultural environmental value of this cultivation. Through itineraries that lead to discover experimental and educational olive groves, tasty traditional recipes, as well as EVO oil production processes in the city oil mill, we want to immerse our visitors in a unique experience that helps rediscover that deep connection with the land we have lost in the frenzy of modern life and learn about the beneficial properties of a food that is the ideal seasoning for Mediterranean diet dishes.
The event "The Oil of the Serenissima" is very rich in cultural, sensorial, culinary, educational and informative experiences that I am sure will involve and get the participants excited in the variety of wellness opportunities that our territory offers.
My heartfelt thanks go to all those who passionately contributed to organizing this complex event, both with active involvement and with financial contributions, and in particular to the Terraccottai of Montelupo Fiorentino who will honor us with their presence, their tradition and their skills.
Together we will really be able to build a small piece of "sustainability" made up of experiences, beauty and friendship.
