Palazzo Ciampa is situated in the main square of the town of Amaroni and was built at the end of the 1800's by Venanzio Ciampa for his 8-sibling family. On the ground floor, Venanzio opened an “emporio”, a store where anything could be found: from food to clothing. Venanzio was famous for his generosity and when wartime came, many of the less fortunate counted on his help for flour, oil, sugar, and even to use his brick oven – one of the few in town – to cook their own bread.
Nearly 130 years later, another Venanzio Ciampa has undertaken the task to renovate the Palazzo, an important piece of history – for the Ciampas, and for Amaroni. The renovation project bridges a family connection through centuries and space, and still today the Palazzo is where the entire Ciampa family, spread throughout different continents, gathers at least once a year to spend quality time together.
The Palazzo stores all the values and the history at the core of Ciampa Antico Olive Oil, which is produced on the fields that surround it and embrace it. It is the heart that beats with togetherness, history and continued traditions.
In the nearby future, Palazzo Ciampa will become part of a unique agritourism, where guests will have a chance to stay while discovering local traditions through wine and food tastings, workshops and other interesting activities.
