The historical activities of Cinque Terre were agriculture, which drew the famous terraced landscape, and fishing. There was no cellar in Cinque Terre without jars containing anchovies, and the smell of wine and fish merged in a historic symbiosis.
To this end it is interesting to quote what the painter Renato Birolli wrote in August in 1955: From the geometrical vineyards the grape will soon climb down, from the sea fish always comes up. The one who goes fishing is the one who climbs the vineyards. The wine production and the culinary recipes are a proof of the local tradition and of the lifestyle of the Cinque Terre's inhabitants; they represent a real expression of the local culture.
