LAZIO

TERRITORY

AND HISTORY

Lazio is a region of central Italy, with Rome as its capital, which extends from the central Apennines to the middle Tyrrhenian Sea. The territory does not have homogeneous physical characteristics, rather it is characterized by its heterogeneity, with a prevalence of mountainous and hilly areas; the plains are located near the coast. The region also includes the islands of the Pontine Archipelago, composed of six small islands, all of volcanic origin, located in front of the coast of Gaeta.

 

The history of Lazio is deeply marked by the history of Rome, both for what it represented for the region in its millennial unfolding, and for what this history determined with the consolidation of the temporal power of the Catholic Church, even this millennial, both for the strongly symbolic and ideological meaning that Rome came to exercise for the Kingdom of Italy, but also for the modern Italian Republic.

 

CUISINE 

AND TRADITIONS

The Lazio cuisine is a home-style cuisine, where traditional dishes are composed of poor but cooked foods that are very tasty.
The most well-known international dishes of this gastronomy are certainly the Carbonara and the Amatriciana, two dishes that have gone around the world and that uniquely recall one of the most beautiful cities of the entire peninsula: Rome. These two traditional dishes are among the most popular and sought after in the capital, and can be found in almost all restaurants.

 

Lazio is a particularly lively region in terms of local festivals and traditions. Seventh for the number of Municipalities (378), it appears to be the first for the number of recorded events, with about 2000 annual appointments including 600 patron saints, village fairs and about 300 festivals.

 

Potentially it is one of the most voted viticultural Italian regions. The soils, unique in their kind, are rich in mineral substances while the Mediterranean climate with considerable temperature ranges is ideal for the correct ripening of the grapes. Added value then, is given by the cultivation of ancient vines: here in fact, viticulture is rooted since the time of the Etruscans.

 

TYPICAL DISHES

Carbonara

Pasta alla carbonara is a characteristic dish of Lazio, and more particularly of Rome prepared with popular ingredients and an intense taste. The most commonly used types of pasta are spaghetti or rigatoni. The origins of the dish are still uncertain and in this regard there are several hypotheses, the most reliable of which traces its appearance back to a Lazio origin.

Spaghetti Cacio and Pepe

Cacio e pepe is one of the most characteristic dishes of Lazio.

As the name suggests, the ingredients of the dish are very simple and include only black pepper, pecorino romano cheese and pasta.

The most commonly used types of pasta are spaghetti or rigatoni.

Rustic pie alla laziale

The rustic pies in Lazio are an excellent "dinner saver", as well as a fanciful idea for an appetizer for opening parties such as Easter. Puff pastry is combined with a filling of vegetables, cheese and salami.
The pillow and courgettes are also used for a more tasty combination.

Pasta all'Amatriciana

One of the most popular dishes in Lazio, probably born in Amatrice, a small town in the province of Rieti, is said to have been the main meal of the shepherds, but originally it was without tomatoes and was called "gricia"; this ingredient was added later when the tomatoes were imported from the Americas and the seasoning took the name of Amatriciana.

Pasta alla Gricia

Pasta alla gricia is one of the most famous dishes of Lazio cuisine, considered the ancestor of pasta all'amatriciana.
In common with the recipe of amatriciana in fact there is the use of the pillow and the Roman Pecorino. The main difference instead is in the tomato sauce, absent in the pasta alla gricia since its origin would even be prior to the import of the tomato in Europe.

Roman Antichockes

Roman artichokes are a simple recipe for a very tasty side dish. the artichokes must be cleaned, removing the harder external leaves, seasoned with minced garlic, parsley and mint and then placed in a pan with high sides, traditionally upside down, well tightened to each other and stewed sweet fire and covered. Steam and low heat cook a concentration of unsurpassed flavors and aromas.

Tripe alla romana

Roman-style tripe is a very ancient dish of the traditional poor cuisine of central Italy, especially in the city of Rome, and as the natural evolution of the cuisine predicts, over the years it has turned from a poor food to a noble and highly sought after dish.

It was a food consumed by the most humble people, because being the less valuable part of the bovine, like all offal, was used in the kitchen by less well-off people.
