Assunta Pacifico, born in 1962 into a family of fishermen, started working with her parents from the age of seven. As a child, her main task was cleaning mussels, which were then used to prepare the Holy Thursday mussel soup. During her life, she had several experiences that helped her to grow and gain valuable experience. These experiences later led her to open ‘A figlia d’o Marenaro.
