This curious event is entirely devoted to focaccia, the flat Italian bread. It’s not any old focaccia either, focaccia di Recco is covered in a layer of creamy melted cheese, it has even obtained European Protected Geographical Status, so imitators beware. This one day event starts early in the morning, with local bakers handing out different varieties flavoured with onion or herbs – roughly 25,000 pieces of focaccia are distributed each year, for free. This popular event has been going strong on the outskirts of Genoa since 1960.
