Ciao Italia

Altamura, the City of Bread - Altamura, la Cittل del Pane

The artisanal breads of Altamura are known throughout Italy. Mary Ann visits one of the signature bakeries in this small city in the region of Puglia where she meets the DiGesu family - all five generations of them - and gets a whirlwind tour of their bakery and the classic breads they make, including the dome-shaped "Altamura" loaf, so named for the hilltop site of the city. Watch the breads bake in a 100 year-old wood-fired oven and dream about "smell-o-vision!"
