The regions of Italy: part 2

The regions of Italy: part 2

***

Piedmont

Did you know…? This is where the famous Italian breadstick appetizer grissini was developed. Legend has it that a baker made them for Duke Vittorio Amedeo II of Savoy, who suffered from digestive problems. And it’s good that he did! This tasty snack is now served up in almost all Italian restaurants around the world, usually for free.

Speaking of… The local saying Per cunose ún a bsogna mangeje pí d’ na volta ansema translates as “You don’t know someone until you have eaten with them.”

Emilia-Romagna

Did you know…? This region boasts two unusual records: It is home to both the largest maze and the oldest tavern. The world’s largest maze is located in Masone, near Parma. It is made of bamboo plants and traces a walking distance of three kilometers. Al Brindisi, the world’s oldest tavern still in existence, was founded as early as 1435 and is located in Ferrara. We advise that you try the maze first and then visit the pub, not the other way around.

Speaking of… The local saying Dl'aqua non bi che i palmun ai marzarì means “Don’t drink water, it rots the lungs.”*

Apulia

Did you know…? Apulians love to party and are excellent dancers. In fact, Apulia is the birthplace of the dance we know as the tarantella, from the Italian word tarantola, or tarantula. What’s the connection? The tarantella was meant to dance away the poison of a tarantula bite. No wonder, then, that the dance is known for its strong rhythm.

Speaking of… The local saying Cu vivi bonu ncivole l’oiu,ma tocca fatichi cu qiru de li gomiti translates as “To live well, you need olive oil; to work well, you need elbow oil.”**

Tuscany

Did you know…? The region of Tuscany is practically built on money. The oldest bank still in existence was founded in 1472 in Siena, and Luca is home to Europe’s oldest mint, which minted coins from 650 to 1843.

Speaking of… The local saying Senza lilleri ‘un si lallera means “You can’t do anything without money.”

Calabria

Did you know…? The country’s name can be traced back to this region. It comes from the word italò(s) (calf), which is how the Greeks of 8th century BCE referred to Calabrians, who prayed to a statue of a calf. Roman Emperor Augustus later used the word to refer to all the inhabitants of the peninsula.

Speaking of… The local saying Cippu du stessu lignu manes “Cut from the same wood,” and describes people who have a lot in common with their parents or relatives.

 

*A fitting maxim for a city with an old pub.

**Or as we know it in English, elbow grease.
