Aubergine (Eggplant) caprese

The first time I had this dish was on a warm early summer evening on the splendid terrace of my friend Charlotte, owner of the "Due Papaveri" farmhouse in Benedello near Modena. The darkness of the evening on the hill was illuminated by many fireflies which made the atmosphere magical... and for me this dish always evokes a bit of this magic.
