The Somariva Museum "Oil Civilizaztion" strongly desired by the Sommariva Family, is entirely dedicated to the civilization of the oil and allows to see all the history of one of the oldest and most important works of the Liguria region. After the expansion works completed in 2010, the Museum went from 200 to 400 square meters and is now connected to the Sommariva Oil Mill through an underground tunnel, thus creating a single space entirely dedicated to the world of oil and its production.
