I think that the family came from the north. But the food is not in the
style of Emilia-Romagna. I was in Emilia-Romagna for 2 weeks in May and
June, and have been there many times as we have friends there.
If I am trying to avoid something over time I will write reviews for some
of the places where we ate in May, June and the beginning of July. The last
time we were in Puglia was about 25 years ago and it has really changed
(for the worse) You can hardly find the old town for all the new tall
apartment buildings and offices. Otranto was just as bad. When we first
went to the cathedral to see the bones of the 813 martyrs we were the only
ones in the cathedral. This time there were 35 people in the small chapel
where they are. My feeling is to only go to unknown old places now.
This is the view from the top wall of the 13th century castle/fortress:
The weeds are growing out of the top of the wall of the fortress.
Guess they have no design review.
