Polenta with the “O”, Civitanova Marche

In Folklore, Food by Silvio DellʼAcqua

The “pulénda de Citanò” aka “pulénda co’ lu O” (polenta with the “O”) is a type of “polenta” -an Italian peasant food made by boiling cornmeal into a dense porridge- that was typical of a very limited area: the surroundings of Civitanova Marche, a small town on the eastern coast of central Italy.
