Ciabatta bread is only 38 years old

Oops, sorry. Should’ve spoiler alerted that.

The Italians should still be worried, baguettes are much better than ciabattas

How old are other types of bread? Why is it only ciabatta that people make a thing of?

even more great is this:

During the 1980s, the term paninaro arose in Italy to denote a member of a youth culture represented by patrons of sandwich bars such as Milan’s Al Panino and Italy’s first US-style fast food restaurants. Paninari were depicted as right-leaning, fashion-fixated individuals, delighting in showcasing early 1980s consumer goods as status symbols.[6][7][8]

Is it Italy that has that special term for old men who hang about and tell construction workers what to do?
