I had just about given up on blogging, when a friend who lives in Venice sent me this wonderful contribution. Thank you, James Jr.
He found it in the Eurospesa supermercato on the mainland, which probably means in Mestre, the city that you go through when you leave from, or arrive at Venice by train, bus or auto.
Just a tiny Italian lesson before I proceed: the ‘spesa’ part of the name of the supermarket refers to shopping. The phrase ‘fare la spesa’ means to do the shopping.
I can take a punt at deciphering some of these, but will depend on James (and others) to help with the rest.
I will list those I am fairly confident of, and see how many of them you can translate. Then, we’ll wait for the help with the rest. Is that a deal?
pasta pasticcio (I think I know what this is)
vino (for you, Susie)
scatolet.. soffitio ?? (this one needs plenty of help)
Vorrechine (no idea, sounds kind of medicinal)
acofi .. (more of no idea!) Maybe these last two are one item?
