Many traditional Italian foods are vegan, like PASSATA DI POMODORO (tomato sauce), PASTA (Not PASTA ALL’UOVO, which means with eggs), RICE, BREAD (beware: some bread may have LATTE -milk-, or STRUTTO -lard-), FOCACCIA (same for bread, check out for STRUTTO)
You will also find many accidentally vegan biscuits, croissants, sweets…and of course a variety of vegan ham, cheese, seitan, tufu, hamburgers…
As I said, vegan food in Italy is everywhere!
