Piazza Principe di Napoli

This is the same square as in yesterday's photo, but seen from the opposite side. The signboard to the right is displaying that day's prices for the butcher shop just out of the frame to the right. They were offering a special price on lamb that day, only €8.90 a kilo. Would that be a good deal in your town?

It has a look of Sicily about it.

Your chicken is quite high ... I priced frozen breasts today; 6.5 pounds for $16.39. Doing a bit of math that comes to about $24.40 in Euro equivalent.

Curious about the houses in the piazza? They appear to be surround plantings?

C'è un parcheggio sotto la piazza? Cosa sono quei porta piante conici?

Ann - yeah, it's all southern Italy...or Magna Grecia, really.

Danielle & co. - you can't escape those green shutters in Molfetta! I'm glad at least it *looks* clean...

Chuck - you lost me on the math there! In this photo, the butcher is offering chicken thighs (def. fresh, not frozen) for €2.90 a kilo, which is 2.2 pounds. Sounds like a good deal to me!

Rob - non è un parcheggio, questa piazza è costeggiata da strade su due lati...e parcheggiano là anche se c'è il divieto! Non mi chiedere dei porta piante...sono orrendi, ma tutto ciò che hanno fatto x "abbellire" questa piazza è abbastanza orribile, nella mia opinione...

You have already explained everything I wanted to ask! And nothing seems more dangerous (or ugly) than public embellishments.

P.S. Mi dicono che l'agnello di latte costa intorno ai 18 Euro al Kg.

Saretta said...

Vogon Poet - allora €8.90 è un buon prezzo! Vieni a Molfetta a farti un carico! ;-)

Those green shutters look so much like Malta.

Your blog is really interesting. I am particularly intrigued by the main photo on the top. My first thought was, oh that's Trani. But I'm guessing it must be Molfetta. Is that near Trani?

Thanks for such a lovely blog.

Saretta said...

Marie - one day I'm going to make it over to Malta to visit!

Ciambellina - Glad you like the blog. This is Molfetta, that's right! It's two towns down the coast from Trani. Trani is more beautiful, though!

Wish I could help you there but I don't shop for meats at the supermarket so I can't comment on the prices.

I do love the shutters and the height of the windows.
