The cheese

Still now the production of cheese is left to the personal enterprise of the farmers. The main produce is the "pecorino" (sheep's milk cheese) that can vary according to ageing. Besides the ricotta cheese there are also the primosale cheese, the tuma cheese and cheeses flavoured with hot pepper or other spices.

Refined the sweet aliesi

The pastry cooks of Alia, thanks to ancient familiar prescriptions recall the delights of their infancy, exquisite memories offered to anyone. In no other place you will find the "scattate" with almonds and cinnamon, displayed like flowers, the "cannoli" filled with ricotta cream and tiny bits of chocolate, the golden "sfinci" glittering with sugar or the "buccellati" dark casket of figs and almonds.

The characteristic carpets

Once the webbing was the main activity of each woman. Today just a few women, with the same ancinet techniques, weave carpets of various length and width, skilfully interweaving warp and weft following a fixed design, which is usually geometrical but may also be with flowers or other figures.
