Authentic Italy

Francis Ford Coppola’ ancestors were from Italy, or better, from Bernalda a small town near Matera in Basilicata region (the heart of southern Italy).
The name of the clip is “Basilicata Autentica” ( “authentic Basilicata” ).
His grandfather preserved traditions and memories of his homeland and handed down through the generations.

Even in Italy, many people do not know anything about “lampascioni” or “gnummariedd”: typical delicious dishes from southern Italy.
It’s amazing to hear the famous director talking about those almost unknown traditonal Italian foods.
