A report about the radio show talking about “m(‘)appare” /mapp(‘ere)ing

For all of the Italian audience, please check out the podcast.

The radio show was proposed to (1) launch the lecture scheduled for the afternoon of the same day at the Institute of Hydraulics at Politecnico di Milano, Italy, and (2) do some live tasting of genuine products from Southern Tuscany.

If you are in a hurry, please skip to minute 10, as the first part of the show was about something else. After that, you have 22 minutes of finely crafted pibinko-style improvisation, hosted by two friends.

I would like to stress that it’s really hard to take pictures in a radio show without a wide-angle camera

For Disma and Ale (kudos!!!), the guys running the show, I would like to point out two typos in the description of the podcast in the Maramao web site:

  • we were talking about “buoimetria” (i.e. night sky monitoring) and not “buoimetria” (oxen monitoring). We do have some livestock in Souther Tuscany, but we aren’t into participatory monitoring of that…yet…
  • when we say mappare, we use an apostrophe and some parentheses…m(‘)appare is different from mappare, just like dont is different from don’t







Below you can see the selection of “cose bòne” (good stuff) brought by pibinko from Southern Tuscany. For these we must thank:

  • Aunt Eda (laurel berry liquor)
  • Aunt Anna (lavender from Certopiano and White Stivalaccio)
  • Loriano Bartoli of the Bartoli farm (vermentino wine, strawberry and apricto juices, various vegetables in oil, marmalades, jams, and sauces)
  • Daniele Francioli from Le Tofane organic farm (pecorino S. Rabano)
  • La Casa del Chiodo, run by Paola Bartalucci & daughters (deer in oil and jam with chili pepper, to be paired with pecorino cheese)
  • pibinko for freshly picked cherries
  • the people of Sardinia (represented in the show by the Arbus knife used to slice bread and various products, and by a bottle of Cannonau wine bought in Follonica before leaving)

Why Sardinia is part of a radio show focused on Souther Tuscany is explained in the last segment of the podcast.
