CHAPTER 10

HISTORY OF BREAKFAST

In order to understand how today’s ‘Italian breakfast’ came to be defined, it is necessary to trace the history of this meal and how it has developed since ancient times. By following the history of breakfast, we discover how each habit has evolved and become structured over time, from eating the previous night’s leftovers or what was obtained by hunting and gathering.

 

From the eating habits of ancient Rome, their evolution during the Middle Ages and the changes brought about by the arrival of coffee, tea and chocolate in Europe, to the Industrial Revolution, we will witness the repercussions of historical shifts on the way we eat and our understanding of breakfast.

 

Which brings us to the present day, from the post-war period to the early years of the new century, when breakfast became a shared ritual to be experienced in the community or at home through the use of new technologies and products.
