The world famous Mediterranean diet holds its roots in the history of Cilento. Ancel Keys, an American physiologist with notable experience in nutritional studies, moved to Pioppi, a small suburb of the town of Pollica, where he spent 30 years, fascinated by the lifestyle of southern populations.
He formulated his first nutritional model here, basing it on the locals’ traditional habits. In his book Eat Well and Stay Well, published in 1959, he elaborated the concept that the low rate of cardiovascular diseases was due to the type of nutrition that Cilento populations had adopted and passed down for centuries.
UNESCO has since included the Mediterranean diet in the list of its intangible cultural patrimony.
Cilento has thus become synonym of good, healthy cuisine, where it is still possible to discover the true flavors of the past. Plates that tell a story and give history to an incomparable place
