I love this word. It means good luck charm, or chase / sweep your troubles away. This is a scacciaguai.
It is on the wall just around the corner from the entrance to a restaurant named Scacciaguai in Barga.
The restaurant is run by 2 brothers and I think it is very good. I have been a few times and have had delicious food and good service each time.
Now for the food.
I should be OK now.
Via di Mezzo 25,
