The coming Friday, most of Americans will celebrate "the National Fettuccine Alfredo Day". It is still unknown why the US choose February the 7th to celebrate fettucine. Indeed, this famous Italian pasta was born in February the 26th, 1908, thanks to the creativity of Alfredo di Lelio and his interest in creating a new nutritious dish for his wife who had recently given birth.

This year, the Di Leilo family decided to join US celebration to mark fettuccine 116 years story. Accordingly, a cocktail / Fettuccine party has been organised for Friday, in Rome, at "Il Vero Alfredo" restaurant in Piazza Augusto Imperatore, 30, from 7.30 to 9.30 pm.
