According to the Italian Cheese Consortium, there are over 450 different Formaggi, or cheeses produced in Italy. Cheese plays a large role in an Italian diet, as they are served as antipasti before the main meal, as well as after the meal, typically served with fruit.

The word cheese derives from the Latin word "caseus". as it is a staple in all Italian meals. Whether salty or sweet, soft or hard, cheese can add a delightful flavor to your meal.
