The structure of a traditional Italian meal differs from other food cultures. Generally speaking around the world a meal is made of a main dish (often fish or meat), preceded or followed by secondary courses – starters and sweets. However, in Italy, meals are traditionally based on two main courses, the Primo and the Secondo, both of equal importance.
