The capocollo of Martina Franca is a traditional sausage highly appreciated not only in Apulia but throughout Italy and also internationally. In ancient times, pigs reared in Salento, in the Taranto area and more generally in Apulia, were brought to be processed in Martina Franca. The Martinese workforce, combined with the exceptionally cool, windy and dry climate, represented a perfect combination for the processing of sausages. The Capocollo of Martina Franca is the quintessence of the skill of the Martina butchers and embodies all the unmistakable aroma of the oak woods and the sparkling air of the Itria Valley.
Capocollo of Martina Franca is a fabulous sausage made from the muscle band of the pig placed - as the name suggests - between the head and the vertebral area.
