Pane sciocco [ˈpaːne ʃˈʃɔkko] (also called pane toscano outside Tuscany) is a variety of bread commonly found in Tuscany, Umbria and the Marches, three regions of Italy. "Sciocco" means "without salt" but is also a synonym for "stupid" in Italian.
Tu proverai sì come sa di sale lo pane altrui, ...
You will experience how salty is the others' bread, ...
Being different from the others kinds of Italian bread, pane sciocco doesn't have salt added. Probably the reason for this comes from around the time of the 17th century when salt was a rare product, with a high cost.
