Cantaloupe Melon and Coppa Charcuterie

The coppa and capocollo are two similar dry cured meat (salumi) made from the same part of the pork (shoulder and neck)  processed in different ways and produced in many different Italian regions. The most appreciated are the Coppa Piacentina (from Piacenza area, a city in  Emilia Romagna region) and Capocollo di Martina Franca (Puglia – Southern Italy).
