The Centennial History of the Oliottaviani Oil Mill: Tradition and Passion in the Art of Olive Oil
In the heart of the picturesque Tuscia Viterbese, a land rich in history and traditions, stands the Oliottaviani oil mill, a symbol of dedication and passion for the art of olive oil production. Our history, deeply rooted in this land, dates back to over a century ago and is the fruit of generations of commitment and love for our work.
From the origins to the present day
It all began in the early years of 1900/1905, when Vittorio Ottaviani, with vision and determination, founded our oil mill in the historic Villa San Giovanni in Tuscia. In the 1950s, with the innovative spirit that still distinguishes us today, Vittorio renovated the old mill, transferring the mill to the historical heart of the town, near the suggestive 'Fonte'. The following decade saw a merger with another oil company, bringing the mill to Piazza Savoia. But the real revolution came when Vittorio's sons acquired all the company shares, giving life to a new era for the Oliottaviani mill. Under the guidance of Alberto's family, made up of his wife Paola and sons Simone, Matteo and Alessio, the mill has embarked on a path of renewal and internationalization, conquering markets all over the world, from China to Northern Europe.
