Zia Margherita di Procida
The great matriarch with sea coloured eyes that change colour like water and clouds. She cooks the best rabbit in all of Italy, and feeds the seagulls on her balcony.
Marina del Mare
Alfredo’s sea bearing mother, Cancer born like a crab, heads out for a swim with her gypsy bandana on her head and returns with it full of herizos del mar, padelle, and all sorts of sea things she eats crude. Even though she’s all class and generosity, a cultural italian mama, I still always see her as a gypsy pirate islander.
