Roma o Amatrice? This typical pasta dish, one of my absolute favourites since I can remember, has always been disputed between the city of Rome, and the smaller town of Amatrice.
My aunt, whilst explaining this long-lasting pasta dispute, once told me a story involving a courageous woman, and that is what I have decided to stick to!
One day, in the 15th century (yes, that does sound quite vague, I must admit), a young woman named Anna De Angelis left from Amatrice with just her sack, containing homemade and dried pasta, slices of seasoned pork, pecorino cheese and field herbs. She walked for miles and arrived in Rome, where, in the middle of the street, she set a boiling pot and started cooking the original version of pasta all’amatriciana. Although the ‘matriciani' were not well received by the Romans, this specialty earned the approval of all Romans in no time, becoming a staple dish also in the Italian Capital.
