The Tuscany region
Elba island is a beautiful island full of vitality.The island of Elba, a green oasis in the Tuscan Archipelago, the island by endless horizons: the golden beaches that San Diego waters, granite massifs immersed in maquis, stories of peoples have always kissed by the Sun.
Elba offers the feeling of many things in one: the beaches and cliffs, the wind, the Earth, the smells, the flavors, the hard work of man, the villages climbed the mountains, terraces overlooking the sea are just the beginning of an island that never disappoints.Visit the island of Elba is a real life experience, and for this Infoelba will help you organize and cut out on you the perfect holiday: from the choice of the accommodation that best suits your needs, to advice on where to go to eat without having "surprises", how to better use your time and where to find the most exclusive places of entertainment.Just 10 Miles from the continent, with an area of 224 km2, Elba is the largest island of the Tuscan Archipelago, and the third, for greatness, Italian islands. In recent years, is part of the Tuscan archipelago national park together with Pianosa, Capraia, Montecristo, Giglio and Giannutri. the climate is mild with an annual temperature between 15° and 16°; seasonal averages are 10° in winter, 14° in spring, 23° in summer and 17° in autumn. Monthly sea temperatures are: April 19th, 20th may. 2, June 24°. 1, July 26°. 8, August 27°. 25° 3, September 5 and October 23 .°. 1. due to the variety of its coasts (that have a development of 147 Km), to the amenity of beaches, to the majestic beauty of the Monte Capanne (1019 m), has rightly become one of the centers of the world-famous tourist attraction.
The main road network (about 160 Miles) is completely paved. There are other roads with macadam for about 80 km. inhabited in epoch prestorica and known for its iron mines at the dawn of the Historical Era, Elba, called by the Liguri "Ilva" by the Greeks "Aethalia", first, then Greek, Etruscan, then remained for centuries. In the middle ages held Pisa and then the Appiani and physicians. From time to time became the European powers who left numerous traces of their domain.Indelible signs imprinted physicians in Portoferraio (in honour of Cosimo de ' Medici the city called Cosmopoli) and the Spanish, who built the fortress of s. Giacomo and Focardo Fort in Porto Azzurro. The short reign of Napoleon (1814-1815, 9 months and 23 days) has left significant reminiscences in the Palazzina dei Mulini, in the villa of San Martino, in the ancient churches of Portoferraio, Marciana Alta (Madonna del Monte) and in other places.Administratively, the Island is divided into eight Municipalities: Portoferraio, Campo nell'Elba, Capoliveri, Marciana, Marciana Marina, Porto Azzurro, Rio Marina and Rio nell'Elba.Famous wines and excellent cuisine together with the sea, mild climate and air transparency, make the Elba a cura, ideal accommodation and tourism in all seasons.
In the area there are many shops where you can buy souvenirs.
Fun and relaxing holiday at the same time.
In Rio, you immediately notice the strong Eastern influence. From the thirteenth to the sixteenth century until the construction of Cosmopolis (Portoferraio) the Saracen invasions followed one another frequently, but the Barbary pirates left behind over the bitter memory of looting and destruction also something sweet. It 's the case of the drunken crushes (originally seen not drink the Quran) which contains the typical ingredients of Middle Eastern Cuisine (pine nuts, raisins from Smyrna, walnuts). The wine Aleatico crucial component in the current version is an addition nineteenth century, as well as nuts, not produced the island and therefore very expensive. The version nineteenth century involved the use of honey in place of the isolate rare and expensive sugar. The crush that resulted, without yeast or eggs, it was very long conservation and therefore perfectly suited to be part of the supplies of nomads and sailors.
Subsequently (XVII century). Sburrita poor as other dishes, the gurguglione and stockfish, became part of the cuisine of the island directly imported by the Spanish, or through the Neapolitan soldiers who formed the garrison of defense of the south east of the island submitted to the Spanish governorship.
Is the ancient way of preparing the "imbollite" kind of muffins made from figs grasselli that abound in these places.
The sportella instead is a kind of bread with aniseed, now more refined than before, when together with the cerimito were traded, including boyfriends, during the Easter holidays. The shape that recalls the symbol of both sexes want to be hope for a future breeding season.
The caccilebbora, this aniseed bread with an egg in the middle, with ancient origins draws wish to fertility.
The large quantity and good quality of the fish helps the preparation of dishes such as boiled octopus, Elba that you eat "to fork", the zerri fried, or marinated, soup favolli, the squid and cuttlefish cooked in various ways, the soups of rock fish and beets, spaghetti with daisy, and many others.
The fish soup, as it stands today, the chronicles of the time, was also prepared when Napoleon was the most illustrious guest Elba.
Poggio and Marciana are famous for sweets such as corollo and schiacciunta, made with lard, which find their "death" drowned in a glass of moscato, of aleatic or ansonica dried.
Much sought after by gourmets are the lobsters and daisies or granzeole that the fishermen of Marina di Campo fish at certain times of the year.
In conclusion, it is clear that the difference in dislocation of the population characterizes the kitchen Elba. The countries in the hills and mountains have a tradition based on the sweets and breads of various shapes and packaging, while "marine" we offer dishes mainly based on fish. Thus we see, as in the past there was a culinary differentiation between the mountains and the sea, nowadays there is a tendency to homogeneity, despite the variety. In fact, in the culinary traditions of Elba are dishes that originated in Tuscany, Liguria, Provence, and also derived pirate.
