In Livorno you can find torta di ceci as part of a local sandwich, which is popularly called "Cinque e cinque" (five and five), because long ago people used to go to the bakery and buy five Lire of bread and five of Torta di ceci. For the "cinque e cinque" a special small long loaf of bread is used, called francesino or a round focaccia. Add a little ground pepper and eat it hot.
One of the most famous places in the city to savour "cinque e cinque" is found next to the beautiful Central Market of Livorno. Since lots of people talk about this famous sandwich throughout Tuscany, we had to travel to Livorno especially to try it and, we have to say, the trip was definitely worth it!
