Gluten Free in Italy it is not a blasphemy anymore

Gluten Free in Italy it is not a blasphemy anymore | Italia Mia |

Only one percent of Italians have celiac disease, similar to the rest of the world. But since gluten is everywhere, there's high public awareness about it and more than 4,000 gluten-free eateries. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Around the Sixties, modern wheat was developed via cross-breeding and crude genetic manipulation, which changed the nutrient and protein composition of the plant. All the celiac problems come from this, and Italy, the country of pasta and pizza, has been overwhelmed. There are not solutions, we must come back to the cultivation of ancient cereals and, for the moment, alleviate the suffering of celiac with gluten free restaurants and products.

10 of the best Italian restaurants in Rome

10 of the best Italian restaurants in Rome | Italia Mia |
From a cozy trattoria to an experimental bistro and Michelin-starred luxury

One thing that should be eternal about the Eternal City is great Italian food. But that doesn’t mean pizza Napoli or pasta marinara every night. These 10 restaurants range from a cozy trattoria through an experimental bistro to the city’s most Michelin star-spangled establishment. What do they have in common?

Not spaghetti bolognese on the kids’ menu.

They’re all highly regarded for the Italian culinary niche they serve.

Tuscany's Michelin star count for 2013 looks similar to the one in 2012. As in the previous years the only three starred restaurant of the region remains ever-green Enoteca Pinchiorri in Florence. Whereas Southern Tuscany is still the Mekka for lovers of two starred Michelin restaurants: Massa Marittima'sBracaliDa Caino in Montemerano and Il Pellicano in Porto Ercole are all based in the region's south. The only exception to the rule is restaurant Arnolfo, which sports two Michelin stars in central Tuscany's Colle Val d'Elsa (30 minutes from Siena).
