Poetry of the Casaro

With tinkling bins or a paciosa cistern passes the cheesemaker, early in the morning.

The truck goes fast, the times are tight, it seems that there is always someone who looks forward to it.

In fact the milk is expected to be poured, heated, analyzed and cured rennet at the dairy.

After a few hours, a large, white, firm, beautiful shape and a similar moon are removed from the steaming boiler.

The cheesemaker looks at it satisfied, splits it, squeezes it in the band, turns it around, and mumbles with a smile: the more it is done.

So every day of the year with cheese always in the head carries on this hard life without ever having a day of celebration.

This fast-paced world keeps him aside, but you know, it's not work, it's art!
