Foggia in a very tough town in South of Italy, overwhelmed by criminality, unemployment, carelessness, lack of opportunities and spirit of initiative. The origin of the name Foggia derives from the latin “fovea” which means (wheat) “hole”, used to store the wheat since the Middle Ages.
Nowadays there’s only one wheat hole in Foggia, under a glass and completely useless. But you can’t say there are no holes at all.
Foggia was born from holes and is dying in (another kind of) holes.
