Old Town Crier

On the Road

The OTC’s own Caribbean Connection writer, Jeff McCord, is sitting outside of “Fred’s Bar” in the cozy piazza of Moncalvo, in the Piedmont region of Italy. Moncalvo is called “The Littlest City in Italy,” so named because even though it is town-sized, the forefathers applied for and received a city charter. It is a medieval town, with the remains of the fortress wall surrounding it. Fred’s is off of the Piazza Garibaldi, a square which attracts the whole town towards 5:00 p.m. when everyone has an espresso or a beer.
