Buon appetito! Everyone loves Italian food. But how did the Italians come to eat so well? The answer lies amid the vibrant beauty of Italy's historic cities. For a thousand years, they have been magnets for everything that makes for great eating: ingredients, talent, money, and power. Italian food is city food. From the bustle of medieval Milan's marketplace to the banqueting halls of Renaissance Ferrara; from street stalls in the putrid alleyways of nineteenth-century Naples to the noisy trattorie of postwar Rome: in rich slices of urban life, historian and master storyteller John Dickie shows how taste, creativity, and civic pride blended with princely arrogance, political violence, and dark intrigue to create the world's favorite cuisine. Delizia! is much more than a history of Italian food. It is a history of Italy told through the flavors and character of its cities. A dynamic chronicle that is full of surprises, Delizia! draws back the curtain on much that was unknown about Italian food and exposes the long-held canards. It interprets the ancient Arabic map that tells of pasta's true origins, and shows that Marco Polo did not introduce spaghetti to the Italians, as is often thought, but did have a big influence on making pasta a part of the American diet. It seeks out the medieval recipes that reveal Italy's long love affair with exotic spices, and introduces the great Renaissance cookery writer who plotted to murder the Pope even as he detailed the aphrodisiac qualities of his ingredients. It moves from the opulent theater of a Renaissance wedding banquet, with its gargantuan ten-course menu comprising hundreds of separate dishes, to the thin soups and bland polentas that would eventually force millions to emigrate to the New World. It shows how early pizzas were disgusting and why Mussolini championed risotto. Most important, it explains the origins and growth of the world's greatest urban food culture. With its delectable mix of vivid storytelling, groundbreaking research, and shrewd analysis, Delizia! is as appetizing as the dishes it describes. This passionate account of Italy's civilization of the table will satisfy foodies, history buffs, Italophiles, travelers, students -- and anyone who loves a well-told tale.

This volume represents the third edition of a work cycle that started in 2006 for my PhD thesis. The thesis was presented in 2010 (first edition, Gattiglia 2010), partially published as a summary monograph in 2011 (second edition, Gattiglia 2011) or in articles (Gattiglia 2012, Gattiglia 2012a, Gattiglia 2011a), and now (third edition) takes the form of a more comprehensive publication in the light of new data. Over the past two years, the work study on Pisa, not only relating to the Middle Ages, continued within the MAPPA (Metodologie Applicate alla Predittività del Potenziale – Methodologies Applied to Archaeological Potential Predictivity) project, allowing a widespread collection of data thanks to which it was possible to explain more fully the hydro-geological, geomorphological and topographic context and to check (and in many cases change) part of the assumptions made.

Tomo I – Il territorio circostante la città di Grosseto è stato al centro di numerosi progetti di ricerca condotti da studiosi afferenti all’Università di Siena e alla Soprintendenza Archeologica per la Toscana. Sono indagini nate con finalità diverse, in tempi diversi e applicando metodologie specifiche delle discipline che le hanno originate. Tuttavia esse hanno in comune l’oggetto, il paesaggio nel suo divenire storico. Paesaggio nel quale è nata e si e sviluppata una città che non aveva origini romane. Il filo conduttore dei saggi che qui presentiamo è dunque la peculiarità di un territorio e di questo modesto villaggio che finirà per assorbire tutte le funzioni della città etrusco-romana di Roselle. Tomo II – Lo scavo di una città come Grosseto è un’occasione per comprendere i processi di trasformazione di un villaggio rurale che nei secoli centrali del Medioevo assorbì progressivamente tutte le funzioni della città etrusco-romana di Roselle. Questo volume presenta pertanto l’edizione degli scavi condotti dall’Università di Siena e dalla Soprintendenza Archeologica per la Toscana unitamente ad una serie di saggi sulla valutazione del potenziale archeologico nel centro storico e costituisce un affondo dei temi e dei quesiti storiografici proposti nel I tomo.
