Hi Georgette...

I just wanted you to know how much I've enjoyed reading the various tales others have shared on this website, and hope my experience encourages others to visit the little village of Cetara, and Nettuno in particular.  This Italy Magazine feature has rekindled my memories of my trip(s) and I particularly like that.  Thanks for the great feature.

I had a great experience during my most recent trip to Italy, in Oct 2019. It involved anchovies!  I love anchovies, but had never thought much about they were caught, where, when, etc.  An article in the New York Times related how one particular area on the Amalfi Coast, Cetara, used an ancient sort of net which allowed very small anchovy to slip through and thus sustain the population. After some research, I discovered that Nettuno was the company that I really wanted to visit on my upcoming visit.  And, I did.  I met the wife of the man whose methods of catching and preparing the anchovy for sale.  She was a lovely woman who helped me select the products that best suited my interest....salted anchovies, oil packed anchovies and their fish sauce.  I have been using these products ever since, and they are delicious. The areas surrounding Cetara are beautiful as well and my trip was much enhanced by being able to visit this little town and it's fishery.
