"The panino in Italy is a natural micro-laboratory for experimenting with taste: the variety of shapes and textures of bread, the choice of ingredients and their infinite combinations, the outstanding ability to mix flavours and reintroduce forgotten tastes. In other cultures, the sandwich is a commodity that holds no surprises. But in Italy, both in the home and elsewhere, it is an art that combines style and simplicity, pleasure and need, in a unique and authentic way. In other words, it stands apart from the usual food routine. So the Italian panino might be considered a chance to transform the everyday into an extra-ordinary experience.
