My Nonna today made tagliatelle for lunch, a traditional Italian kind of fresh pasta made with flour, eggs, love and much more. But sometimes we hear different names of this long pasta. Which is the difference?
The tagliolini are the less thick! Must not exceed 3 millimeters, then there are fettuccine, must have a thickness ranging from 4 to 6 millimeters, then the epic tagliatelle on the other hand are slightly thicker and range from 8 to 10 millimeters, while the pappardella far exceeds the centimeter of thickness. I prefer to eat pasta instead of measuring it. What about you? Ahah
Everybody knows about Monte Vesuvio. But did you know that this island un the middle of Mar Tirreno in Italy has his own active volcano?
Stromboli is a small island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the north coast of Sicily, containing Mount Stromboli, one of the three active volcanoes in Italy. It is one of the eight Aeolian Islands, a volcanic arc north of Sicily. Strabo writes that people believed that this is where Aeolus (a mhytical character) lived.
In the early 1900s a few thousand people inhabited the island, but after several waves of emigration the population has numbered a few hundred since the mid-1950s.
Its name is derived from the Ancient Greek name Strongýlē, which was derived from στρογγύλος (strongýlos, "round"), after the volcano's round, conical appearance when seen from a distance.
Every italian region borders with a country (France Switzerland Austria and Slovenia) or has a seaside, out of Umbria. Can you find Umbria on the map? What does this mean? This means that wherever you live in Italy, your region will have sea OR you can travel to another country without crossing any region. But not if you live in Umbria. Ps im not bullying it ahah I love every italian region ❤️
