Let’s start with local specialities.
In Pontremoli, in the green Lunigiana, a magic Middle-Earth between Emilia and Toscana,
la città del libro (‘the town of books’), town of the prestition Premio Bancarella (‘Bancarella Award’), there is an old café-patisserie, called Antica Pasticceria degli Svizzeri (‘of the Swiss’ in honour of the two Swiss brother who founded it)
where they make the Amor.
A fabulous pastry, made of two vanilla wafers filled with a thick butter cream. The recipe is still a secret.
Ah sweet taste of childhood, a visit to this magic land of deliciousness was a must every time we went to Pontremoli.
