Cairano and Calitri, between alleys and flavors
The journey begins in Cairano, in the organic village with less than 300 inhabitants.
“The country of the coppoloni” as narrated in his works by Vinicio Caposela.
In Cairano, time seems to have stopped. Oasis of peace and homeland of the famous choreographer Franco Dragone (Cirque de Soleil).
An archaic journey between rooted verses and stories of other times, up to the picturesque Via delle Grotte, unique in Campania, to the discovery of millenary cellars that hide authentic necropolis. Passing through the theater in the center of the village to the cliff, the highest point, where you can enjoy a broad view of the valley of the Ofanto and on the Picentini Mountains, on windy days, he plays the masterful pipe organ, unique in the world, which leaves room for meditation.
The journey continues in the village of Calitri, in Positano d’Irpinia, the town of Vinicio Capossela, and famous ” city of ceramics.
We will visit the company ” Il fienile “, where the old premises used as an agricultural barn have been converted into a real cheese academy, for an experience on the preparation and maturing of cheeses. This will be followed by a tasting of the typical Calitrano caciocavallo, with an interesting pairing of local wines.
It continues with a food and wine experience in a typical restaurant in the alleys of Calitri: “La Gatta Cenerentola”; here, in a cave, Filomena will make us taste the famous ‘Cannazze’, the pasta with meat sauce typical of festive moments. After lunch, a walk in the historic center, you will go up to the stands of Borgo Castello and then you will reach the panoramic point of Santa Lucia, where you can admire the postcard town.
