The historical background of the Romanesco artichoke draws back from the Etruscan people during the 4th-century BC.
For centuries this traditional Roma artichoke has been consumed by peasant families but, after the Second World War, it has spread and inhabitants started to cultivate it, mainly in the area of Ladispoli, Castellammare and Campagnano.
