Summary "Food scholar Oretta Zanini De Vita traveled to every corner of her native Italy, recording oral histories and delving into centuries-old archives to tell the long story of pasta through the extravagant variety of its shapes and the abundance of names by which it is known. With original drawings by Luciana Marini, this rich and uniquely personal volume provides the complete history of one of the world's favorite foods."-- Back cover.
