Camogli the Harbour (Italy) – detail

Camogli is a small Italian fishing village and tourist resort located in the province of Genoa on the Italian Riviera. Camogli has 5,692 inhabitants.
The name has a double meaning in Italian. The first translation, “houses close together”, is apparent when strolling through the town’s narrow streets, which are lined by tall columns of pastel-colored homes. The second meaning, “houses of wives”, refers to the sea captains, sailors and fishermen’s wives, who traditionally spent their time at home while their husbands were out at sea.
Camogli is located just at the basis of Monte di Portofino and guarantees a very special gastronomy tradition (focaccia in particular).

Focaccia (Italian pronunciation: [foˈkatʃːa]) is a flat oven-baked Italian bread, which may be topped with herbs or other ingredients.
Focaccia is related to pizza, but not considered to be the same.
Focaccia is quite popular in Italy and is usually seasoned with olive oil and sometimes herbs, and may be topped with onion, cheese and meat, or flavored with a number of vegetables. However, by far the most typical focaccia is simply baked dough topped with olive oil and a simple herb like rosemary or sage, and salted with coarse salt. It is very popular as a snack in Italy and school children will often purchase a slice from a baker on the way to school, to enjoy at break time.
In the late 1800’s an Italian immigrant to the United Kingdom created a version of foccacia with a unique English twist. The local baker to Kings Clipstone, Nottinghamshire developed his version, known locally as Italian Lard Bread, using that staple ingredient of every Englishman’s diet at that time in history, lard.
