Here, indeed, nothing is clear: geometrical exactitude suddenly vanishes and the greatest disquietude reigns.

According to modern dictionaries, when the term moves from geometry to common speech and, even more, to philosophical language, it makes a crucial leap, passing from its proper sense to acquire a figurative sense—which, as usually happens, inevitably complicates the situation.

Philosophy, for its part, together with theology, often surrounds the term with fateful adjectives, making the question of its meaning even harder. To this must be added, as one of the most obvious indices of problematicity, the fact that philosophical language tends to include under the general definition of inclination the vast and frightening catalog of desires, instincts, and passions.

Cervantes' Don Quixote: A Casebook (Casebooks in Criticism)

Love is well- 5 wishing from inclination. Sexual and emotional inclination toward a person—for brevity's sake, we'll name it Eros—stirs serious apprehension, mostly among philosophers. They perceive it as a threat to the equilibrium of the subject—a profound quiver, a slippery slope.

With his famous theory of the erotic way of philosophy, Plato is perhaps an exception. Traditionally, however, it is not artistic inclination that most worries the philosophers. They fear, above all, the impetuous inclinations that are difficult to dominate, such as, in the turbulent realm of Eros, the inclination that turns into lust and other carnal pleasures—prominent among which, according to some, is the propensity of specifically female nature to 4 Immanuel Kant, Lectures on Ethics, Ed.

In ethics of a traditional sort this argument is often developed with special passion, but it also appears in authors who would seem to be more open- minded. In the mid-nineteenth century, for example, the influential philosopher Pierre Proudhon, known for his innovative and revolutionary ideas, wrote some passages on this theme that are worthy of mention.

Some shapes speak of the poverty of rural areas. Hold up a thin sheet of tagliatelle dough and look through it. We all know some of the names—fettuccine and ravioli, tortelli and tagliatelle— but variant doughs and shapes within such well-known categories can swap names as well as ingredients.

For Christmas Eve, the same pasta, dressed with honey and walnuts, became maccheroni. You should not be hungry when you open this book. You will learn techniques for making and shaping more than thirteen hundred forms of pasta, though this is not a recipe book. You will travel up and down the peninsula, learning about villages and hamlets, cities and towns, all over the country, but this is not a guidebook. This is a treatise of extraordinary learning and compelling information wrapped inside a great appreciation of the history and meaning of pasta.

For more than a thousand years, Italian hands have crafted this simple dough into hundreds of different shapes with a creative genius that no other noodle-eating people in the world has rivaled.

To me, this heritage is an Italian gift to gastronomic culture on a par with what the Florentine Renaissance gave to art. I am thus proud and delighted that the results of my research are now available to English-language readers. This book is about the traditional shapes of Italian pasta—the long, the short, the layered, the rolled, the stretched, and the stuffed.

My research aimed to sort out and clarify this vast repertoire of shapes and their often ambiguous and confusing names. Because the industrialization of pasta making has, to an extent, altered the traditional nomenclature and shapes, it was essential to consult these oral sources of the old ways. And so I endeavored to record—region by region, valley by valley— whatever remained of this immense and uniquely Italian heritage. And the second, Are you going to talk about what sauces go with what shapes?

Dried pasta, the kinds made with durum wheat, is found in Italy from about a. It was, in fact, the Muslim occupiers of Sicily who spread the manufacturing and drying technique. Documents exist to prove this, should there be anyone left—and it appears that there is—who still believes that Marco Polo introduced noodles into Italy in on his return to Venice from China. In reality, by that time, people throughout Italy had been eating pasta for at least a century.

But by and large, the sauces and condiments are dictated by what people have always done. Sauces were invented from what was on hand. Nor does it give recipes or advice to modern cooks. It is a record of what ordinary people did and do and have always done with the available resources. Necessity became tradition, and tradition would appear to have entered the national DNA to the point that Italians instinctively match shape and sauce and get it right.

Tradition, of course, has always been guided by three factors: local products, their seasons, and, most of all, the liturgical calendar. In areas where vegetables were plentiful, the different pasta shapes, everywhere served mostly in soups, came to be paired with various kinds of vegetables. Legumes, on the other hand, are grown everywhere, and are paired with pasta everywhere as well.

The widespread use of the tomato in home kitchens, which began in the early nineteenth century, has brought about a certain uniformity, and since its arrival, tomato sauce has been the most emblematic condiment for pastasciutta, although seasonal vegetables and local cheeses are still used in many parts of the country. In oretta zanini de vita xv Puglia, for example, orecchiette are sometimes dressed with tomato sauce, yes, but when the splendid local turnip greens cime di rapa are in season, no one would use anything else.

And the same goes for sauces made with fowl, such as duck or goose. Next, I owe a grateful mention to my late husband, Carlo De Vita, to whom this book is dedicated.

Among so much else, including his moral support during the years of research, he provided material help in reading antique documents and explored the patents section of the Archivio Centrale dello Stato the Italian national archive with me. The incomparable Tommaso Lucchetti consulted documents in Umbria and the Marche on my behalf, and Laura Celentano accompanied me on research trips to Basilicata.

Last but not least, the pasta makers, notably Benedetto Cavalieri and the entire Martelli family, provided precious information and insights that helped me to put into focus the links between the ancient art of home pasta making and the modern pasta industry.

Our diligent, and diplomatic, copyeditor, Sharon Silva, has been inspiring. Luciana Marini, artist, and Stefano Filippi, photographer, worked closely with me to provide just the right images, and they too have my thanks. Notes 1. I am grateful to the institute, and to its president, Corrado Barberis, for graciously authorizing this English edition.

See spaghetti entry, page Milano: Rusconi, , 67 ff. Paolo Rivalta, ed. That certainly implies that the traveler was also familiar with dried pasta, which indeed Venetians had been eating for quite some time. Serventi and F. Sabban, La pasta. Storia e cultura di un cibo universale Roma-Bari: Laterza, , Writing with humor and charm, Oretta thinks nothing of reporting the opinion of a four-hundred-year-old author as though she had just put down the telephone, and sends the reader to the remotest villages of the most distant alpine valleys as though they were marked in bold on any map.

In other words, she puts even educated Italian readers through their paces—with a smile. To make the going easier for English-language readers, Oretta and I have added a glossary including notes on translation choices , a bibliography, and many new notes and explanations in the text. To cover everything, however, would have made this an encyclopedia of Italian culture, not a biography of traditional pasta shapes and their innumerable variations.

A few aspects of the translation warrant explanation. The star of this book is the pasta shape. Each entry heading is the principal name by which a given pasta shape or group of similar, or similarly named, shapes is known.

Other names for the same or similar shape are given in the text. Sometimes the names are normal Italian words used fancifully, such as spaghetti. Where the pasta name is a dialect word or otherwise requires lengthy explanation, this is covered in Remarks as well.

Sometimes nobody knows what a pasta name means or what its etymology is. In other words, English- and Italian-language readers are often in the same boat.

It is impossible to translate all the entry headings even into standard Italian, much less into English. Orecchiette are the most famous example. This is not an exact science. An index of pasta names, including the alternative names for the entry headings as well as other pastas mentioned, is given at the end of the book. Readers who wish to follow the pasta shapes around their home territories would be well advised to keep a detailed atlas of Italy to hand, such as those published by the Touring Club Italiano.

After only a few pages of this book, it will be clear that the important geographic divisions are val- maureen b. Place names without precise political boundaries, especially river valleys, often lack clear-cut names in Italian.

And Italian editorial and probably cartographic usage values nuance over the consistency so relentlessly pursued by the Englishspeaking world.

Sometimes only the name of the river will be listed, sometimes the valley as one, two, or three words, sometimes under V, sometimes under the name of the river. Speaking solely of river names, only the Tiber, Tevere in Italian, has an English translation.

The gastronomic divisions of Italy do not, however, always correspond to the modern map, and regional attributions should never be taken too literally. Also, some Italian regions have been formed from more than one geographic entity, such as Emilia-Romagna or Friuli—Venezia Giulia, and others that were formerly joined have been split into two regions, such as Abruzzo and Molise.

The regions of Sicily and Sardinia each comprise numerous islands, not just the large ones. Adding to the complexity are the ancient regional names, traditionally dragged in to serve as English equivalents of Italian.

Examples are Latium, an ancient region that only partially corresponds to the modern Lazio, and ancient Calabria, which has nothing whatsoever to do with its modern namesake, an area roughly equivalent to the ancient Bruttium. Where only half the name of a double region appears, it is not an omission. Beneath the regional level come the provinces, each bearing the name of its capital city. Municipalities are subdivided into any number of villages, towns, frazioni fractions , and borghi hamlets.

Unless it is obvious that the urban area is meant, all names of cities should be taken to include their surrounding area, possibly as far as the provincial boundaries. The names of regions are given in English where English equivalents exist, otherwise in Italian, but not Latin.

Only the names of the largest cities, whose English names are household words, are translated. For the adjective form of all place names, I have preferred to use English. Each entry, corresponding to a pasta shape, is divided as follows. If it sometimes seems vague or ambiguous, it is because people used what they could lay hands on.

It is not necessarily intended as a recipe. No list can be exhaustive. Modern chefs are devising all kinds of new ways to serve traditional pastas, but that is for another book. Comprehensiveness is not possible. Lovers of parallel lists—all provinces, all cities—will have to loosen up here.

The list of sightings of a given pasta may well consist of a region, the outskirts of a city in a different region, and a valley somewhere.

Oretta and I consider ourselves very fortunate indeed that our book is being published by University of California Press and thank Darra Goldstein, Sheila Levine, and Dore Brown for their wise and good-humored counsel throughout the months of translation and editing. Oretta doubted that a single copyeditor could combine the culinary expertise and cultural breadth needed for the task, while I feared that no one could possibly have the strength, patience, and restraint I knew the job required.

But there was no need to worry. We are obliged to the press for assigning just maureen b. Oretta Zanini De Vita has been my friend here in Rome for more than twenty years, and much of what I know about Italian food and its history has come from listening to Oretta talk and from translating her work. She is the classic walking encyclopedia of Italian social history and so much more, and gives her pearls for the asking. And speaking of walking encyclopedias, my friend Leofranc Holford-Strevens, in Oxford, has replied within minutes to all my most desperate e-mail queries on everything from Albanian diacritical marks to Greek citations.

Thanks, too, as always, to the irreplaceable Howard Isaacs, my partner for the Dictionary of Italian Cuisine.The English, seeing that x, pronounced it the way that tradition has established in their language.
