The correct dissemination of extra virgin olive oil cannot forget the excellent production areas of this product because the habit of use risks diminishing its value.
He is a well-known friend, extra virgin olive oil, so well known that we forget his virtues.
The world of production, as well as enthusiasts, however, cannot think of making correct communication, informing tourists and new patrons simply based on traditions and customs. It is not even possible to think of making oil as it has always been done.
That's why, in Tuscany, in Caldana, a pretty hamlet of the Municipality of Gavorrano (GR), an event dedicated to the king of fats will take place on 21 September.
It starts at 9 with some talk about the world of oil, some provocations, the clarifications of a world that is growing but needs to mature.
After the greetings from the authorities, Andrea Biondi, Mayor of Gavorrano; Claudio Saragosa, Councilor for Regional Planning and Lidia Bai, President of the Metalliferous Hills Park, will speak:
Cristian Marinelli Lab. Analytical: the quality of an EVO through chemical-physical parameters

Alissa Mattei President Knoil: the meaning of EVO polyphenols
Aldo Mazzini taster and panel leader: the panel test between past and future, (lights and shadows).

At the end, the presentation of the EVO oil competition of the Maremma.
From 13 to 14, tasting of extra virgin olive oils from the area paired with wines and typical dishes and then a guided tour of the historic center of Caldana and the famous cellars.
