Imperia, November 2007. “A tasteful walk in the center of Imperia discovering the historical, cultural and nutritional values of olive oil, bread and the typical products of the Ligurian Riviera”.

Great expectancy for the seventh edition of Olioliva, an event dedicated to quality extra virgin olive oil that is proudly produced in the province. For the 2007 edition there’s great news and a constant quality growth that make Olioliva one of the most important events of the capital town. The main objective consists in the evaluation of extra virgin olive oil of the Taggiasca variety, (the Liguria region counts 10 thousand small producers for over 10 thousand acres, for a business of over 5 million liters of olive oil for around 40 million €), a target that has been reached in the past editions that have seen over 70 thousand visitors.
