The local culture is told in Vico del Gargano in the medieval village, inside the suggestive Municipal Museum Trappeto Maratea where once the olive oil production of the territory was concentrated. The cultivation of olives and subsequent processing until obtaining a delicious oil were the basis of the local economy. The ancient oil mill, the "trappeto", is more than 30 meters long and between 3.50 and 5.50 meters wide, divided into two areas. The wooden presses occupy one of the two spaces together with the large local stone grinder and other tools useful for the production of oil and for agricultural work. In the adjacent space you can admire an oil tank, a warehouse, and a stable for the animals used in the manufacturing process. Other objects illustrate the daily life and the monastic kitchen where the mill workers could refresh themselves.
