I was in Palermo, Italy last September and had a great anti-pasta plate at a hotel bar. On the plate was a pepper the size and shape of an olive. It was green like an olive but soft like a pepper. Nobody at the bar spoke English and none of us spoke Italian, so we never found out what we were eating. We did not run into these peppers any place else in Italy. Anybody have any idea what they were??
