The history

L’Orciolo d'Oro

Italy’s L’ORCIOLO D’ORO is the world’s leading and longest-running professional competition for Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It originated in the second half of the 1980s, based on an idea by Marta Cartoceti. She brought together a small group of enthusiasts, producers, restaurateurs and oenologists who served as a self-styled “amateur” jury.

I Volti dell'Olio

A prestigious photographic project ‘I VOLTI DELL’OLIO’ (THE Faces of Oil), through which Maestro Oliviero Toscani portrayed the faces of the patrons of the companies winning an Award for Lodo Guide 2023.

It’s an important visual project, which will be published in the guide, and will express, through the faces of those involved, their passion, their sacrifice, and their love of the land. Portraying a face is an art, as is the ability to produce and refine a unique and excellent extra virgin olive oil.
