The history of breadsticks
Breadsticks, or else Grissini, are said to be originated from Torino, Italy.
It is said...
They were invented in the 17th century to cure Duke Vittorio Amedeo II of Savoy. As the duke was suffered from some health problems, digestion problems, then the doctor hired a baker, Antonio Brunero, to create a digesting food suitable for the duke. The baker used the dough, the same to bake a typical bread of Torino, and stretched it out, into thin strips. Once baked, the dough became crispy and easy to digest. Because of the success of the product, breadsticks became famous to the whole of Italy and nowadays, worldwide.
