“L’Italia a morsi”: recipes from Lierna

The territory of the municipality of Lierna is located on the eastern shore of Lake Como, bordering Varenna and Mandello del Lario.

Comprised of twelve villages, Lierna is famous for its religious monuments, military architecture, lakefront beaches that have little to envy of maritime ones, and its vibrant cultural scene. But not only that, it is also renowned for its wines, fish, olive oil, cheeses, honey, allowing locals to bring truly sublime dishes to the table.

In the episode shot in Lierna, on Lake Como, a small village rich in history dating back to ancient Rome, Chiara Maci met Annamaria.
