The Italian city of Ferrara in the Emilia Romagna region is known for a type of sourdough bread that is shaped like a cross. It's called Coppia Ferrarese, from the Italian wordcoppiawhich means couple.
We visited a local bakery, Panificio Perdonati, to see how the bread comes together.
"Coppia is made with two pieces of dough then joined, knotted together," owner Romano Perdonati told INSIDER. "It's a couple, a bit like two lovers, husband and wife are a couple."
Coppia is made using a soft wheat dough called Mother Yeast, which can last for decades if refreshed with flour and water every day.
Panificio Perdonati makes Coppia in five different sizes, from a small version for restaurants to a much bigger one. In total, it makes about 800 loaves per day.
The origin of the Coppia Ferrarese is not clear. Some say originated in 1536 at a banquet in honor of the Duke of Ferrara.
