The Museum of Oil

Podere Fieniletto and a nineteenth- century dairy for the production of Parmigiano Reggiano were transformed by the Orsi Coppini family into a tour dedicated to the olive tree, the symbol of peace and dialogue. Ancient documents in historic archives demonstrate that olive trees have been cultivated in the Parma area since the XII century. Inside the Museum visitors will find: the Anita space, dedicated to the history of oil, with a “Genoese”-style screw press and wooden lever and screw press; the Americo space, with a two-wheeled stone olive mill with a brake-measuring device dating back to the 1950s, a hydraulic press, an iron press, a four-column hydraulic press, a hydraulic pump and two mechanical separators; a reading nook where visitors can admire a two- wheeled stone olive mill.
