Let’s be clear since the beginning: were not the Chinese to invent pasta, hence it did not come to Italians thanks to Marco Polo. Instead, it was born in Arab Sicily, to then go up all over Italy. Passing through Naples and Genoa. This is the curious story of the dish symbolizing Italianness.
Italian is a Romance language based on the fourteenth-century idiom used in the city of Florence. The official language spoken today in the Italian Republic and in the Canton of Ticino in Switzerland is based on the Florentine literary used by the great writers Dante, Petrarca and Boccaccio.
