What better way to celebrate the humble caper than to dedicate a whole festival to it! The Festa del Cappero in Fiore takes place on the Aeolian Island of Salina culminating this week in a lively festa on Sunday evening (7 June) in the enchanting piazzetta di Sant'Onofrio in Pollara, against a backdrop of a smouldering Stromboli.
Unsurprisingly, anything remotely caper-flavoured finds its way into the festival's gastronomic offerings, but there is still space for mountains of fresh pizza and pastries and, of course, the island's superb Malavasia dessert wine.
