Escaping the pirates at Portofino (Trekking and Cooking in the Wild of the Genoa Area)
|

With the help of Silvia we would dive into the XIIIth century events, the time when Corsican pirates used to ravage the richest part of Liguria, forcing the fishermen to move house to the hills of the present day Portofino Park. We will understand the consequences of such escape on the lifestyle of the fishermen who, obliged to hide from the plunderers, had to become farmers and mountaineers. We will walk over the paths of the Park, learning to recognise and cook with the forest herbs in order to prepare Genovese pesto according to the traditional recipe handed down to the innkeeper’s wife of the Antica Locanda of Mulino del Gassetta. Special surprises will not be missing when later we go down to the exclusive beaches along the course leading to Portofino, where, in the shoes of the survived fugitives, we will gather to celebrate the “Grazia Ricevuta” (Received Grace), at the ancient Church of Saint George.
