Gastro-Culture Wars

Focaccia versus Big Mac. Michele D's erects Golden Arches in the central piazza of ancient Italian town lauded for its historic bread.

"The long red mat was taken away secretly during the night," Libération reported, noting too that the "enormous M" over Piazza Zanardelli was "also packed up surreptitiously." The windows were covered "like a shroud on the victim of a culinary battlefield."

"Today," the newspaper said, "there are no longer Big Macs, Chicken McNuggets or industrial fries in Altamura."
