And it can even become ethereal if it is reinterpreted by one young chef talented, like Isabella Potì, which has "reinterpreted" the Ribollita proposed by Orogel in his line Virtù di Zuppa (and below you find the recipe, ed). Be it a skilled transformist, the ribollita has written it in its history, which starts from buns of unleavened bread that accompanied the banquets of the nobles during the Middle Ages.
