I think there may be more to it than just the type of flour.  The ciabatta recipe I use (to make it in the oven) has me spraying the inside of the oven every ten minutes for a half an hour while the bread is baking, and that seems to get the crust very hard and crisp.

We have stayed here a few times. Inexpensive, clean, en suite bathrooms in all rooms, around the corner from Harry's Bar, and a minute and a half walk from St. Mark's.  Here's the web site: http://www.cadalisera.it/english/routes/routes.htm

I just noticed your reply from 10/09.  I am interested in contacting you, but I can't figure out how to pm. I will be in Vasto next month, and would like to discuss this with you.  Please pm me if you can, and give me some details. Thank you,  rtcorea@gmail.com

Before we even bought a place in Italy, my wife and I obtained a Codice Fiscale at the local town hall in order to be able to open an Italian bank account.

The only cleaning is to remove the head and guts.  Then butterfly them and lay them flat on a plate, drizzle with lemon juice and a good olive oil, chopped garlic, and parsley, and allow to marinate an hour or two before eating.

With all due respect, as an American, I am able to keep an arsenal in my home in the US that would supply a small European country's army.  I'm sure I could not transport it to Italy, but I have no doubt that I wouldn't need to.  I was just inquiring whether a non-resident could legally possess a firearm in Italy.

We bought an apartment in Vasto (CH) in Abruzzo north of Bari on the coast.  It won't be finished until next March (it's new construction) and we can't wait.  Vasto is a nice size city (40,000 people) with a great medieval history and an old wall and castle, great shops and restaurants, and a lot to see.  It sits on a hill above some of the most beautiful beaches on the Adriatic, and from our balcony we have a view of about 10 miles of the coast.  Real estate prices were reasonable, and the food is great and also not expensive (as long as the dollar doesn't go down much more against the euro).  We also love the Salerno and Amalfi coast area, but I think you'll find it much more expensive, and, in the summer especially, much more hectic.Good luck on your search.
