Near Milan airport I had a plate (for dinner) of Mom's garden grown tomatoes with fresh mozzarella. The Mom's part was printed proudly on the menu. I had cold octopus salad at a relative's house - that was excellent. Tasted another excellent octopus dish in a restaurant - that was Florence. My first lunch ever IN Italy was Fruita di Mare, which is mixed seafood. But it was on a bed of french fries, not pasta. Italians love potatoes. And I've had BBQ - grilled meats, if you prefer - many, many times. All of which is to say that the country doesn't actually live on pasta. And it certainly doesn't live on pizza. A very popular dish is called "toast' - grilled panini with any of a variety of toppings. English style toast is called "grilled bread", so there's a difference.
