To Rosa, 10 years old, the Mediterranean Diet is the set of “good” things that the land in Cilento offers. Among these, the figs are the symbol of San Mauro Cilento, the hill town where she lives. Here, many fig-based dishes are prepared: they are the result of an ancient tradition that has been handed down for generations up to Rosa: fig-based jams, pizzas with figs, pies with figs, and many more.
