Basilicata, also known as Lucania, is a region in the south of Italy, bordering on Campania to the west, Apulia (Puglia) to the north and east, and Calabria to the south. It also has two coastlines, one on the Tyrrhenian Sea between Campania and Calabria, and a longer coastline along the Gulf of Taranto between Calabria and Apulia. The region can be thought of as the "instep" of Italy, with Calabria functioning as the "toe" and Apulia the "heel".
At the beginning of 1993, UNESCO declared Sassi di Matera a World Heritage Site. In the same year the Pollino National Park was established.
Traditionally, this dish is served with pasta called “ferricelli,” named after the iron rod the dough was rolled around. It’s a lovely toothsome pasta, but of course, the recipe is fabulous with any shape, size, or type of pasta!
Hi all, we've been in Italy for some time and realise that because all our income is in the UK, we haven't done an Italian Tax Return.Does anyone know of a good commercialista in Puglia or Basilicata that can help us - it would help if they spoke some english. Thanks
