Legend has it that a mermaid called Partenope had picked the Gulf of Naples as her home and from there she sang with a melodious and sweet voice. The people, to express their gratitude towards her, brought her seven presents: flour, a symbol of wealth; ricotta, a symbol of abundance; eggs, a symbol of reproduction; wheat cooked in milk, a symbol of the fusion of the vegetable and animal kingdom; orange blossom, a tribute to all people; and finally sugar, to celebrate its sweetness. The mermaid then combined all these ingredients together, creating the first pastiera Napoletana.
