Ancient documents witness that Dolcedo used to be composed of ten small districts also called "villate". Among them the most important was, and still is , Bellissimi, followed by Trincheri, Piazza, Lecchiore, Magliani, Ripalta, Costa Carnara, Castellazzo, Ramelli, Isolalunga.

The high number of villages is to be justified by the fact that, in the old days , the crisis of the coast determined by the fall of the Roman Empire and the consequent standing incursions of different aggressors ( Longobards , Turks) forced the population to undertake massive migrations towards the hinterland. Today Dolcedo has been turned into a multietnical centre where people from different countries live in perfect harmony.

After being turned into a town council, Dolcedo experienced a long period of prosperity mainly due to the olive tree cultivation. In the XII Century it registered the peak of its economic floridity, as witnessed by the existence of 119 olive presses in the territory. The olive trees is cultivated on narrow terraces sustained by stone walls whose extention often surpasses that of the land to cultivate. The final product of this cultivation is the oil; very important for a sane diet.

Amongst the various oils available the best is , without doubt, the "Extra virgin pure olive oil" ("oliva taggiasca") wich does not undergo any chemical manipulation and contains an acidity rate not superior to 0,8 %.
