Rita and the secret of fried bread

Rita lives in a small town in Liguria. When there is a market in her country, she prepares a work table where cooking vegetables and a wonderful fried bread. She prepares the dough with a recipe that only she knows and that is the result of traditions. Watching her while she was cooking, I thought about the importance of women’s traditions when women taught to other young women how do you have to make bread, how do you have to weave the sheets on your bed kit, how do you have to rise children. The long, mysterious, archaic tradition of transmission of women knowledge.
