The “juta” to Montevergine between cult, legend and nougat

The gastronomic and artisanal vector revolves around sacredness. For this day, therefore, the spotlight will be on the confectionery center, for which Ospedaletto d’Alpinolo is also known, specializing in the production of nougat, dry pastries, biscuits, Easter eggs and dried fruit. Above all the nougat, the “cupeta”, is closely linked to the celebration of the Madonna of Montevergine: since ancient times pilgrims have stopped here to find refreshment and taste the typical products of the area, such as the “cupeta”, an original blend of honey, egg white and hazelnuts, ancestor of the southerner. Today, as then, faithful and simple tourists can taste and buy our delicacies.[:]
