The Story to live together

Today, at dawn, the death of Mr. Lambicco, rich feudal lord of Bernalda, was announced. It was rumored that the rich gentleman hid a great treasure and an assault on Ammicc Palace was unleashed. Imma, Lambicco’s daughter, however, reveals that the treasure is actually an ancient secret recipe and decides to open the doors of the palace only to talented cooks and talented pastry chefs.
If you want to participate in the “treasure hunt”, come tomorrow in front of the church of San Bernardino. Behind the treasure lies a “sweet” surprise … hurry up!
