Grissini are traditional Italian breadsticks originated in Torino (region of Piedmont).
History tells that in Turin in 1666, the first King of the House of Savoy, Victor Amedee suffered from food poisoning. The doctor ordered the baker of the court to prepare a very thin and well-baked bread, in order to destroy any microorganism present in the dough: the grissini was born!
The noble patient was cured and the breadsticks were adopted by all the nobility of Turin.
