We have, with the gracious assistance of various people who live locally, in Scotland, Canada and America, started a collection of over 100 typical recipes from Picinisco. Our plans are to publish these as soon as possible in Italian and in English.
We have been involved with the Picinisco, Val di Comino Millennium Foundation, who have collected funds to conserve the Parish registers of San Lorenzo in Picinisco, which are nearly 500 years old.
I Ciacca is working with Angela Rossi a Masters graduate (with distinction) in Fine art from Middlesex University to establish a Living Archive at I Ciacca.
We hope to start a seed bank to preserve local seeds and plants.
