Still today in the old town there is talk of the Femmen de la ndrame to say there are some women who sell the “drame” to be roasted or with sauce. They are nothing but the entrails of the horse that come from these clean and sold women. In the most vulgar dialect of Bari they are called, in addition to “ndrame du cavadde”, also “ciole du cavadde”. The smell of “ndrame arrestute e cu sughe” is typical and fills the streets of the old city! Another typical smell that can be breathed in the alleys and courtyards of old Bari is that of brasciole (rolls) always made with horse meat.
