Tips and curiosities of the tomolo

Did you know... Calabria is responsible for over 80% of the world's bergamot production, making it the most important center for the cultivation of this citrus fruit. The cultivation of this prized citrus began in the coastal area around Reggio Calabria in the 17th century and has gained popularity over the years due to its essential oil, widely used in the perfume industry. The original Eau de Cologne, created in Germany in the early 18th century, was made from bergamot oil.

The "Bergamotto di Reggio Calabria" has been awarded the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status, which safeguards its name and ensures that only the citrus fruit - and the oil derived from it - produced in this specific geographical area can bear this name.

In Calabria, festivals and celebrations are held in honor of the bergamot, where one can discover the various applications and history of this fascinating citrus fruit.
