Category:Blog Tags : 

If your destination is Massa Lubrense and you are wondering which are the most original souvenirs or typical gastronomic products that you could buy here, we have compiled a list for you from which you can take inspiration. Read on if you’re looking for the perfect souvenir!

1. Pottery

The perfect souvenir is the one made in the hands of an expert artisan, who will amaze you with original creations of ceramics inspired by tradition, technical and stylistic innovations. The beauty of porcelain is enhanced by exuberant colors but there are also more sober and minimalist creations. It satisfies all tastes and ensures you a great impression. 

2. Provolone del Monaco

Provolone del Monaco is obtained from a long maturation of the milk, exclusively raw, of the Agerola cows that graze freely in the Lattari Mountains. Its shape is similar to that of an elongated melon and its weight varies from three to eight kilograms. The long seasoning, of about 7/8 months, gives the cheese a yellowish texture. To appreciate provolone, it is usually served with seasonal fruit or, even better, it can be enjoyed with jam.

3. Handmade sandals

When you are exploring Massa Lubrense, you may come across shoemakers who, in a few minutes, make customized sandals for you. You can choose the material, colors, and any decorations that make the customer experience fun and creative. Once the craftsman’s work is finished, you will be thrilled to show off your new sandals. Take yourself a couple of sandals as a souvenir.

4. Paintings and pictures

Usually by visiting such characteristic places, we can find paintings made by local artists in the souvenir shops. These impress on canvas small glimpses of characteristic streets or a truly suggestive view of the sea. Each work is unique and contains details that others do not have. Find the most enchanting paintings among the shops and take home with you a memory imprinted on the canvas.

5. Lemon themed souvenirs

The European Union has recognized the uniqueness of the ‘Sorrento’s Lemon’, also known as ‘Massa’s Lemon’, giving it the IGP mark. From lemon, you can get the most imaginative gift ideas. Among these, you could decide upon the purchase of the famous ‘limoncello’, the particular lemon jam, 100% organic lemon soap or themed handcrafted objects.

6.  Sorrento walnut liqueur

Sorrento’s walnuts are very popular, they are also known outside Italy, thanks to their light flavor and tender and crunchy texture. In addition to the better-known limoncello, a souvenir appreciated by lovers of liqueurs is the one produced with fresh Sorrento’s walnuts, known as ‘nocino’ or ‘nocillo’. As a rule, the liqueur is served after meals as a digestive and can be accompanied by treats.

7. Olive oil

Among the typical products, Massa Lubrense also offers a refined production of olive oil, which has been awarded the D.O.P. mark. Olive oil is a typical product of Italian culture. A small bottle could be the ideal gift for those who appreciate Mediterranean cuisine.

When traveling, you don’t always have time to experience everything the local cuisine has to offer. Buying a local cookbook might be the easiest way to take home some of your dining experience and what you couldn’t taste to replicate by yourself.

9. Furniture created with the inlay technique

The inlay technique is an art entirely born in the Sorrento area, then spread throughout Italy. This procedure involves decorating the surface of the furniture with wood, mother of pearl, and other materials. The craftsman engages all his ingenuity to make the furniture real furnishing treasures that give a touch of originality to your house.

10. Fridge magnet

Last but not least, after a journey to discover a new location, buying the typical magnet to attach to the fridge is a must. Often you come across souvenir shops and one of the first things you will notice are the walls with magnets of every shape, subject, and color attached to them. Selecting the most beautiful is a difficult choice but it is the best souvenir to end your journey.
