Recipe: Paccheri with artichokes procidana

The paccheri, originating in the Neapolitan tradition, and the artichokes, a genuine and succulent product grown in the lands of the small island of Procida, are the perfect combination for a first course that is easy to prepare and with a strong taste.

Ingredients

  • Paccheri
  • Artichokes
  • Garlic
  • Spicy or sweet chilli
  • Anchovies
  • Capers
  • Black olives
  • Parsley
  • Grated Pecorino cheese
  • Toasted grains of bread

Process

Let's start by cleaning the artichokes by cutting them into wedges and putting them to boil without making them become too soft. Drain them and prepare the sauté with garlic and chilli in extra virgin olive oil, adding a few anchovy fillets, capers and black olives. Sauté the artichokes in the pan and let them brown over medium-high heat. Once the paccheri are ready, drain them and add them to the sautéed artichokes adding some parsley, grated pecorino cheese and chopped toasted bread.

    Religious occurrences

    Add to calendar 2020-04-05 2020-04-13 Europe/Rome Holy Week Are very followed in the island the religious events linked to the period of Holy Week before Easter; very evocative, among these, the Procession of the Apostles of the Holy Thursday and the Procession of the Mysteries of the Holy Friday. The Procession of the "Apostles Hooded" è organised by the Archconfraternity of whites, founded in 1581 by Cardinal Innico d'Avalos d'Aragona. At the end of the celebration of the washing of the feet, the twelve "apostles" (with the garment of the confrere) incappucciano and with a cross on the shoulder and a crown of thorns on the head parade in procession through the streets of the island, preceded by "Centurion", and followed by the masters of ceremonies and other confreres. The culminating moment of the rites of the week is found in any case in the procession of the Mysteries of the morning of Fridayì holy, sometimes also referred to as the procession of the dead Christ. The origins of the rite risalirebbero at the end of the XVI century, organized by the Brotherhood of the Blues (founded in 1629 by the Jesuits) since the second half of the Seventeenth century, period from which it draws its main characters. Up to the half of the XVIII century was essentially a procession of flagellanti, transformed by then in a procession exclusively of mysteries, floats of religious character. The characterizing portion of the procession, in addition to the participation almost "total" of the population on the island, è also the presence next to the so-called "Mysteries fixed" used every year and from different churches on the island, also of mysteries "variable" or "furniture", prepared each year by individuals or associations artistic works of the island, brought to arms by young clothes of the classic role as 'confrere of Turchini" for a fixed path, from the most ancient village of Terra Murata up to the port of Marina Grande. Closes the procession with the statue of the Dead Christ by the sculptor Neapolitan Carmine Lantriceni. In the general silence, the sound of the trumpet and drum characterizes the passage of the procession.
    The Mysteries
    The Mysteries are allegorical floats of religious character handcrafted from year to year by Procidani, sometimes gathered in artistic schools dedicated. Generally consist of one or more wooden planks (said "bases") long up to 8 meters wide and about 2, on which are arranged the sculptural representations (or better, symbolic interpretations) of steps the Old or New Testament, and in particular of the Passion of Christ. The materials used are generally papier mache, wood, plastic, polystirene, and fabric; typical is the technique of the "mold" which allows to reproduce a three-dimensional object using the papier. Generally during the implementation (which Può last several months) the mysteries are kept hidden to the public, so that they can be seen for the first time directly during the Procession of Fridayì holy, and often immediately after, in the same day, are immediately removed or even destroyed. Rarely in recent times some of them are kept for some months to make them can be visited by tourists in the summer season. The embodiments are from the classic "Last Supper" up to constructions much moreù complex (both in the meaning that in embodiments). Often the "Mysteries" refer to the architectural and artistic styles of different eras, also thanks to the wide use of colonnades (higher than 4 meters).
