The Cacciucco

The cacciucco is a dish of fish, typical of the livornese kitchen, even if a version of Viareggio exists, or rather, exist infinite versions of this recipe…

There are many hypotheses about the origins of the cacciucco; one of them sees it as a symbol of the popular generosity: it is a dish created by collecting the fish offered by the fishermen to the family of one of them who died during a storm. Another legend makes the cacciucco a symbol of the origins of Livorno and of its population, composed by so many different people: Jewish, Africans, Asians, Anglicans and Dutch.

The cacciucco indeed is a soup with different fish, crustaceans and shellfish, with a tomato sauce and toasted bread, a tasty and satisfactory dish.
