In the kitchen where we prepare breakfast for the guests of the B & B there are three chairs and a sideboard that tell a little about the history of our family. The chairs, which date back to the late nineteenth century, are signed G. G., that is Giorgio Ghedini, Cesare’s great-grandfather. A “R” was also added to a chair, which stands for Caesar’s grandfather.
The cupboard, instead is signed C. L., that is Cordioli Luigi, the great-grandfather of Giuseppina (but also the father of Giuseppina!). The cupboard, which dates back to the mid-nineteenth century, was originally surmounted by a plate, then replaced by the current showcase, built, look a bit ‘, by carpenter Roberto, grandfather of Caesar.
As Giuseppina and Cesare always say: the cupboard was married before us!!!
