Italy and olive oil, the longest love story of all time
Italy thrust itself in the middle of the Mediterranean sea, making it the perfect environment for the natural growth of many varieties of olive trees. For this reason the populations that have lived in the Italian peninsula have had the possibility to enjoy a wide range of olive based product.
Few may know that…
Nowadays Italian olive oil is used all around the world in the making of the best dishes in many cuisines, but you may be surprised that before the use of coal as a fuel, olives from the Apulia region were mainly used to make burning oil, that was sold all around Europe to fuel lamps. This is because it could be sold for much higher prices than edible oil therefore only the rich would have olive oil on their tables.
