PARADISO DI BUI
Behind the town of Pietra Ligure we find gentle hills covered by that extraordinary plant that is the olive tree. Martina Casanova’s family lands extend right in this area. The olive groves are cared for with love and from the olive harvest we obtain products of excellent quality such as extra virgin olive oil, olives in oil or brine, olive pate.

Olio Pedro was born in 2017 thanks to the passion of Claudio who, together with Chiara, takes over the family olive groves located along the hills of the enchanting hamlet of Ranzi at 200 meters above sea level which for over 150 years have hosted centuries-old plants of different cultivars. Today the company boasts the extraction of oil from four indigenous varieties harvested individually from which four types of different oils in purity are produced.
A choice is that of harvesting olives plant by plant that rewards quality and enhances biodiversity with the aim of preserving the traditions of a land that has always been linked to olive trees and the flavors of its fruits.
Olio Pedro has joined the Gambero Rosso “Oli D’Italia 2020” guide and for the second consecutive year has obtained the “two leaves” for the Taggiasca and Olivotto cultivars.

THE ANCIENT MILL OF RANZI
Visiting this ancient original oil mill (around 1700) you have the feeling of going back in time … you can almost see the ox that with its strength, turning in circles, allows the gears to move and squeeze the olives. You can see the tank, complete with a plugged hole on the bottom, in which the oil is separated from the water which is then drained by removing the cap, and the hearth on which the water was brought to temperature. A journey through time to discover the gold of Liguria: oil! You can experience all this in the old village of Ranzi, on Pietra Ligure’s hills, also known for the traditional Corpus Domini flower carpet.

THE LOCAL FARM MARKET
The typical “stalls” of the weekly fruit and vegetable market host the best of local agricultural production. The farmers leave their work for a few hours in the fields and among the terraces, the traditional “fasce”, to bring their products to the square, in a festive atmosphere made of scents, colors and aromas.
