In the ancient Roman world, rice wasn’t that of a cereal suitable for human alimentation but rather of a medicinal product which, it was prescribed by doctors to the richest patients to cure body diseases.

Rice was known in Italy before the real cultivation began, because it was considered a spice and it was sold for therapeutic purposes. Some traces of the presence of rice in Italy are already found in documents of 1390. In 1468 in Lombardy, a region of north Italy, was inaugurated the first paddy field. From Lombardy, the cultivation of rice quickly extended to all the wetlands of the Po Valley, and then in Tuscany and Emilia Romagna.

Rice, in addition to being widely used as a base dish, in the form of boiled salted rice, lends itself to the preparation of more elaborate salty dishes such risotto but also cakes.
