The 13th of June has always marked the arrival of summer for the inhabitants of Castelcivita, a small village on the slopes of the Alburnihills where the feast of St.Anthony is celebrated with bonfires. Casa Madaio has tried to interpret the feelings and richness of this area which are reflected in the luxuriant Mediterranean scrub and in numerous, stunning natural caves and hollows. The burning of aromatic branches of myrtle on the bonfires in honour of the saint produces a very fine ash which is the precious ingredient for the Cinerino from Casa Madaio. During the weeks after the 13th June, the ash is collected and used to treat the Cinerino, a sheep milk cheese matured in natural caves.
