Calabria revisited - Stolen Figas

I first read about the area of Calabria in a memoir by Annie Hawes. Calabria is Italy's unloved stepchild, but I don't know why. Calabria is the poor southern end of the boot of Italy and held in some contempt by the rest of the country.

After reading Rotella's ode to the area and its history, you will think differently. Rotella's family comes from this area and he recounts his visit and meanderings around the area. a really pleasant trip. Stolen Figs is a wonderful stolen moment.
