La Cecla — Pasta and Pizza   Leave a comment

Pasta and Pizza (Franco La Cecla) – In this charming little volume, originally published in Italian, La Cecla traces how pasta and pizza—two foods not widely eaten until the twentieth century in Italy—came to embody national identity. Both pasta and pizza are treated individually, and both are followed from the Risorgimento through the exodus of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Especially interesting is the discussion of the “creation” of Italian cuisine outside of Italy’s borders.
