Giovanni and Francesco came to London quite a while ago, before Mamma’s Goodies, as two of many of the Italians in the city, working hard and projecting harder. Suddenly their dreams turned into reality when they returned from one of their trips back home in Sicily with the receipt of a particular purchase, an Ape Classic.
Whoever comes from Italy has already understood what I am referring to, but to make it clear, Ape Classic is s a three-wheeled commercial vehicle produced since 1948 by Piaggio.
In Italy, especially south, the Ape is not simply a motor vehicle, the Ape is something more, a symbol, a cultural heritage, and for many years a real and proper little engine of many families’ economy.
You could see them loaded with anything possible, from fruit and vegetables to pigs or goats. You could see them fully equipped for being a takeaway kitchen!
Francesco and Giovanni, in the context, have loaded it up with “Goodies”. Better, “Mamma’s Goodies.
