Carlo Cracco with 25-year-old Mattia Pecis, resident chef at the newly reborn Pitosforo in Portofino
Portofino is not one of those pit-stop tourist places in Liguria, even though from dawn to dusk it's always a coming and going of boats from the nearby towns, unloading as many tourists as possible and then loading them again when they no longer know what to do, since there's little to do except taking plenty of photographs. It's not such a place because the road from Rapallo, ten km all in all, is narrow and full of bends and dangers especially for pedestrians and cyclers, including the wild boars that in the middle of the night leave the woods in search of food.
