Prepare the octopus as described in How to Cook an Octopus ↪.
In the meantime, boil in abundant salty water the potatoes. Let cool, peel and cube them.
Cut the octopus tentacles in small pieces and the head in strips and add to the cubed potatoes in a large bowl.
Dress with chopped celery, the finely minced garlic, the extra virgin olive oil and the Italian parsley. Adjust with salt and pepper.
Let marinade for at least one hour at room temperature.
The octopus, when at fridge temperature, loses parts of its flavor. Always bring to room temperature, before serving.
