Pappa al Pomodoro is one of the foods that Tuscany has contaminated the entire peninsula with. This contamination occurred not only because this thick bread soup is delicious but also because of a funny song that is a sort of ode to the tuscan dish-Pappa al Pomodoro. Ask any italian to sing it for you - it's tremendously popular! The lyrics and refrain say "hurray to Pappa al Pomodoro". The singer Rita Pavone sang to the music of Nino Rota. I find this video amusing and it's one of the few songs that are entirely dedicated to a tuscan dish!
