The Bussola cookie originates from the Burano island of Venice and it is also known as Buranelli.
This soft baked cookie can be eaten a few days (and weeks) after it is baked if sealed properly, however it doesn’t retain its soft texture and becomes harder.
Dunk your hardened bussola in a hot tea as a nice sweet treat.
The Lion of Venice is also known as the Lion of Saint Mark; maybe this is because it is situated in Saint Mark’s Square in the historic city centre, and it serves as the city’s symbol since it came to Venice in the 12th century.
The column on which it sits was built in the later 13th century (1268).
