Speaking about Italian food, Pasta comes to mind like an obvious connection, in all its sauces! Being a so important symbol of the culture, how could a specific Museum miss in Italy?
You can find it in Rome, divided in 11 rooms spread over two floors, offering lots of information about the history, the production, the pasta-making machines, the nutritional values.
At the time of writing the Museum is unfortunately closed for renovation, but you can keep you updated in the official website http://www.museodellapasta.it/index.php.
