Girls Around the World: Italy
August 22, 2009

  • If you take piano lessons, you may be surprised to learn that the piano was invented in Italy!
  • Food is the cornerstone of Italian culture. Get this – in fact, all stores in Italy close for a few hours each day so everyone can take a long lunch break.  AND kids get to leave school and go home to eat lunch with their families! How lucky are they?
  • And, of course, one Italian creation that everyone loves… pizza! But did you know that no one knows for sure who really invented pizza?  It can be traced back to China, Greece and an ancient ruler named Darius the Great!  He baked flat bread and covered it with dates and cheese. In fact, researchers that dig up ancient cities found evidence of a flat flour cake. They also dug up old shops that had tools similar to ones in a pizzeria.

What kind of pizza toppings do you like? Try this:

Make your own unique pizza and send us the list of toppings you used!  Send pictures of your creations! Use any ingredients – pepperoni, broccoli, or how about making a Pepper-Pineapple-Peanut Butter Pizza?  If it’s crazy enough, we’ll even feature it in our Would U Eat That hangout!

We’ll post your recipes and pictures right here on iTwixie!
