Spaghetti alla trabaccolara is an old recipe which only very recently has entered the restaurants' in  Viareggio menus. ‘Trabacco" was the name of the boats of the fishermen that came from San Benedetto del Tronto who came to live and fish in Versilia from the 1920's to the 1930's.  It was a sauce prepared on board, perfect yet simple. Today it is found in all the trattorias around the port of Viareggio (and around the province of Lucca) and the central market in Piazza Cavour.
