About three years ago, I met Massimo Palmadori at the Chieti Ecotur. I was there for the tourism workshop; he had a stand promoting his olive oil and handmade soap. I was very interested to see his lovely soaps as, up until then, we had been buying chemical-free soaps from an island off Scotland. Beautiful soaps but we wanted to use an Italian product.
Anyway, since then we have been buying Signore Palmadori's soaps for our guests - lavender, cinnamon and orange, sage and olive oil, to name but a few. This year, he has introduced Ass' milk soap which is good for delicate skin. I think it was Cleopatra who bathed in Ass' milk so I'm expecting to look ravishing any day now!
