Recipe: the Scurpella di Civitella Alfedena

The Scurpella, a dessert of fried leavened dough, is a symbol of abundance. Tradition has it that it was prepared by the women of the village, who keep the ancient recipe and work a whole night preparing the dough. The Scurpella is offered in large quantities during special occasions of civitellese life, such as baptisms, engagements, weddings and is the protagonist of the Festa della Scurpella, celebrated during the second week of August, during which the women of the village carry their creations on sticks and in baskets.
