Grissini is the Italian word for the iconic crispy breadsticks which date back to around 1670, where allegedly these were invented by a baker called Antonio Brunero, from Turin. It was a food that was meant to be easier to digest for Duke Victor Amadeus II of Savoy, who had digestive problems in his childhood.
