Loliv – immersive experiences and craft skills to discover the real Southern Italy, starting from Puglia
We organise culinary and artistic experiences with local craftsmen, during which visitors are inspired by artisans’ stories and literally touch their crafts.
We target curious and conscientious visitors, eager to discover the authentic character of the places they visit and to support the local economy and traditions.
Thus, while visitors model clay at the potter’s wheel and make mozzarella, they gain a real insight into local lives and traditions.
Immerse yourself in the life of local artisans and remain fascinated by their world!
Loliv’s experiences are only with real craftsmen and craftswomen, in the sense that their main activity is production not tourism. They resist mass logic by creating unique, high-quality products, and they uphold traditions without forgetting the importance of research and innovation.
Our artisans are different because of the passion they put into their craft – they have made a personal and professional choice driven by a vocation that sometimes involves sacrifice. They are a true source of inspiration for those who get to meet them!
It is the artisans who guarantee the authenticity of our experiences.We co-design the experiences directly with them to ensure the highest quality.
