The whole town will be involved in this initiative: bars and restaurants will offer special aperitifs and shops will be decorated with olive trees, an original way to highlight the importance of this speciy.

Girolio 2014 will be also present the awarding of food bloggers who joined the contest on six issues that explain the Italian cuisine, an opportunity to discover new recipes created by food lovers who want to promote the values of the Mediterranean diet.

The side events of this “tasting weekend” ranging from cookbooks presentations to guided tours discovering the artworks inspired by olive oil out, initiatives which will introduce you to the most hidden aspects of this jewel, an heritage to be protected now more than ever.
