The “Tenera Ascolana” Olive is the queen of green olives and an important heritage of the Marche. The cultivation has its diffusion area around the province of Ascoli Piceno, is a rather long-lived plant and its fruit is used green and preserved in brine. As the story goes, at the times of the Emperor Nero, during the trips made by the Romans to take the salt from the Adriatic Sea, Romans invented the transport of the Olives Tenere in large clay jars filled with sea water. From this experience was born the expression “salamoia” (Italian for brine).
Oleificio Silvestri Rosina is located in a lush valley where the oil has always been the pride of the peasant culture. It is a family business producing extra virgin olive oil for over seventy years. The love for the tradition and authenticity of the products led the founders, Franco Albertini and Rosina Silvestri, to attain great success and a growing demand for their products. With the passing of years, children and grandchildren began their career in the company, bringing a great contribution to the further development of production.
