First of all, at home, my grandpa separated the olives from the leaves: grandpa put the olives and the leaves on an inclined piece of wood; from there, the olives rolled down into a bucket, while the leaves remained on the wood.

Then, the olives were brought by a rail into a machine that washed them with cold water, and then into an olive press.
Finally, after some filtering, the olive oil came out of a little tube, ready to be bottled.

It was a great day.
