MOZZARELLA The Mozzarella is a fresh cheese, originally from Campania (in southern Italy), traditionally made from Italian buffalo and later cow's milk by the pasta filata method. In 1996 "mozzarella di bufala" holds the status of a protected designation of origin (PDO 1996) under the European Union. The term "mozzarella " is used for several kinds of Italian cheeses that are made using spinning and then cutting (hence the name, as the Italian verb mozzare means "to cut"). If you are interested, we can arrange private visits to local cheese factories, to view the work.
OLIVE OIL (olio d'oliva in italian) is another flagship of Italian gastronomy. Olive oil is obtained from the olive, a traditional tree crop of the Mediterranean Basin. The oil is produced by pressing whole olives. Italy produces 21.5% of world production of olive oil. In the autumn months (October and November), you can participate in the olive harvest. This tradition brings together so many people to celebrate this precious fruit, with festivals and celebrations.
