It is a culture that has greatly influenced Paola: "My maternal grandmother lived in a farmhouse with a garden in front livestock out back. She cooked with a mythical wooden stove, with concentric rings, on which I always found a pot boiling. My other grandmother, from Lecce, made pasta from scratch with whole wheat flour, she dried tomatoes on the roof of the house, figs with almonds. With the vegetables, she could make anything. It was from her that I caught the passion that animates my dishes."
