Un Futuro Per Amatrice, By Mara L.

Earlier in the summer, I wrote about spaghetti all’Amatriciana and how much it matters to the people from Amatrice that, if you call your dish this way, it had better be true to the original recipe. Meanwhile the city has been in the news for so much sadder reasons, the August 24 earthquake and the shocking destruction resulting from that.

In order to help the people of Amatrice, there is an initiative by the Italian organization Slow Food. They are asking restaurants to put spaghetti all’Amatriciana on the menu and to donate 2 Euros per order. Here’s a map and a list with places that participate.
