After days of local food, you are craving some delicious Italian food. What can you do now?

Irene’s childlike soul inspires “Favole di Ceramica”

anemone

Favole di Ceramica” (pottery tales) narrate the idiosyncrasy and mirth of being happy with life. To do so they turn themselves into different shapes – from paperweights to vases – in order to express love for creativity and simplicity.

Irene’s adventure starts about 10 years ago, when her working career unfortunately comes to a forced end. Ceramics had never been part of her life before that time, and when Irene touches it for the first time she feels something special: that flexible, moist, captivating material gives her the feeling that she has finally found what she was meant for: use her creativeness to share human warmth. After attending a course, Irene opens her own workshop in Formia, where she lives.

“La Fattoria”: breeders and butchers among tradition and innovation

Mr. Veneruso has run his butcher shop “La Fattoria” since 1989. This family business offers high-quality, certified meats of different kinds, and puts together a centennial tradition with innovation.

The name “La Fattoria” – “the farm” – comes from the Venerusos’ long experience as bovine breeders. Anciently there were stalls on the backside of the butcher shop, where animals were kept and feed. Then, in 1985, they had to move to the mountain of Alto Beneventano, where the air is healthier.
