We talk about the famous "capocollo" from Martina Franca, handmade with lean meats from local farms and included by "Slow Food" among the one hundred Italian products to be protected; roast mixed, the best-known specialties , cooked with painstaking care in furnaces with fragno or olive wood.
These are traditions that local people have never abandoned, so that Martina Franca is included in the international movement of "Slow Cities".
