Martina Franca Capocollo

Ark of taste
Back to the archive >

Puglia’s best cured meats have traditionally come from Martina Franca, and in the past, workers from around the town were always hired in the Taranto and Salento areas to help during the pig-butchering season. This town, in the Itria area, is home to some pork specialties still made using traditional techniques and, wherever possible, locally farmed ingredients. Among the most celebrated is
capocollo or capicollo, the name used in southern Italy for cured pork neck.
