Orecchiette are a pasta typical of Apulia, a region of Southern Italy. Their name comes from their shape, which resembles a small ear. An orecchietta has the shape of a small dome, with its center thinner than its edge, and with a rough surface. Like other kinds of pasta, orecchiette are made with durum wheat and water. Eggs are rarely used. In traditional Southern Italian home cooking, the dough is rolled, then cut into cubes. Each cube is pressed with a knife, dragging it on the board and making it curl (making a cavatello). The shape is then inverted over the thumb. Orecchiette are eaten with broccoli, turnip tops, mussels and mushrooms. Each Apulian family has its own recipe that is handed down from mother to daughter. According to distinguished scholars of Apulian food and wine orecchiette would have originated in the territory of Sannicandro di Bari, during the Norman-Swabian domination, between the 12th and 13th centuries.
During her childhood in Rome, Osanna and her sister Turchese would play with pieces of art created for their mother by Lucio Fontana, Mario Ceroli and Arnaldo Pomodoro. It could be said that the pieces she creates today are inspired by those wonderful memories, or, maybe, are a result of her own femininity….or maybe both. In recent years, Osanna's attention has focused increasingly on objects and furnishings. Artisanally made, every creation is modeled by hand from wax which is then fused in art foundry. Creations conceived as sculptures, metals blended to create flashes of antique gold: An aesthetic of exclusivity, research on forms and desire to explore shapes are integral parts that inform Osanna Visconti di Modrone designs.
L’Osteria della Gardetta è stata aperta nel 1935 in una tipica casa nel centro della borgata di Chialvetta grazie alla famiglia Comba. Dal 1978 è gestita da Rolando ed è diventata in breve un punto d’incontro degli amanti della montagna e di quelli della buona cucina. Il Rifugio – Osteria della Gardetta si trova nel centro di una delle più tipiche e ben conservate borgate alpine, dove si trova il museo “La Misoun d’en bot” e che è punto di partenza per molte escursioni sia in estate che in inverno. "La Misoun d’en bot" (in occitano significa "La casa di una volta") all’interno del museo è ricostruita con particolare cura e in sezioni ben strutturate la testimonianza della vita nella casa di un tempo, raccontata dagli oggetti raccolti dalla paziente passione di Rolando nelle borgate abbandonate del vallone di Unerzio. Gli oggetti ritrovati sono circa 1500, disposti in un antico fienile a due piani. Vale la pena una visita, così come il cibo.
