city of conca dei marini

Conca dei Marini is a town and comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of south-western Italy.

It is situated on a hill close to the coast and between Amalfi and Furore. It was perhaps founded by the Tyrrhenians with the name of Cossa, and was conquered by the Romans in 272 BC.

In the Middle Ages, it was a trading base of the Republic of Amalfi. In 1543 it was sacked by Turkish pirates. The port maintained a certain degree of trades until the 19th century, and was also the seat of a tonnara until 1956.

Sfogliatella

Sfogliatella (Italian pronunciation: [sfoʎʎaˈtɛlla], plural: sfogliatelle), is a shell-shaped filled Italian pastry native to Campania. "Sfogliatella" means "small, thin leaf/layer," as the pastry's texture resembles stacked leaves.

The sfogliatella Santa Rosa was created in the monastery of Santa Rosa in Conca dei Marini in the province of Salerno, Italy, in the 17th century. Pasquale Pintauro, a pastry chef from Naples, acquired the original recipe and began selling the pastries in his shop in 1818
