History of the Testo Romagnolo for piadina
Piadina has ancient origins, it seems to have been born already at the Etruscan times, then it would be “perfected” by the Romans. The name "testo" instead comes from "testum", that was the terracotta tiles used by the Roman Empire legionaries to cook thin sheets of flour and water.
