Reccomend*, Reccommend* (for Recommend*)

Recco is a comune in the province of Genoa, Italy, which is famous for its focaccia con formaggio (focaccia with cheese) and its September 8th fireworks festival in honor of the Virgin Mary. (By the way, I like that excuse for a fireworks display a lot more than I do the usual "bombs bursting in air." Fare l'amore non la guerra!) The residents of Recco are also known for their water polo team and ... I'm not really sure what else. (Although it's pleasant enough to imagine. Greco-Roman wrestling, perhaps?) Reccomend* occurs five times in OhioLINK, and Reccommend* six, but I'd really recommend you avoid Recomend* as that brings up 159 records, most of them containing a correctly spelled word en EspaƱol.
