Breadsticks (also known as grissini, grissino or dipping sticks) are generally pencil-sized sticks of crisp, dry bread that originated in Italy.

It's believed that it originated in 1643, when a Florentine abbot described a long-shaped and "bone-thin" bread being made in a town outside of Turin. Tradition states, however, that it originated in the region of Piedmont in the 17th century, invented by a baker called Antonio Brunero, from Turin. It was a food that was intended to be easier to digest for the Duke Vittorio Amedeo II of Savoy, who had digestive problems in his childhood.
