The site of the Olive Tree Museum
It is located in a beautiful Art Nouveau building built during the twenties to house the Headquarters of the Fratelli Carli corporation. It is still part of the vast Carli complex in Imperia. It was converted to a Museum to display the noteworthy collection of items collected over decades by the Carli family and to illustrate historical connotations between the evolution of the olive tree and that of civilization over a period of 6,000 years.
Layout and services of the Museum
The storage areas and specialized library of the Museum are also located therein. Across the patio from the Museum entrance there is a cafeteria and gift shop; above them is an auditorium, equipped with sound and video installations for various types of gatherings.
Visitors to the Museum may visit the modern Carli Olive Mill by appointment. The latter is adjacent to the Museum and is in operation during the Olive Harvest season (normally between December and March). The nearby production, sales and administrative facilities may also be visited by appointment.
The Olive Tree Museum supplies to visitors Multilanguage hand-set phones (Italian, English, French and German) on hire at the Museum entrance.
The Olive Tree Museum is open every day, except Sunday, from 9AM to 12:30 noon and from 3 to 6:30PM.
