The invention of flying saucers is recent, dates back to the early years of World War IIwhat is considered as the first sighting of Ufos of the modern era.

The June 24, 1947, American private pilot Kenneth Arnold stated that he had seen a series of nine unidentified flying objects flying over Mount Rainier (Washington). The high profile of this issue in the international press has led to popularizing the expression "flying saucer" (flying saucers) to describe the phenomenon. Shortly after, the pasta factories began to create dies allowing to produce the now essential pasta format

This sighting was followed by another, on 27 October 1954 in Florence, above the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and the municipal stadium during the friendly match between Fiorentina and Pistoiese.



The round and twisted shape of the flying saucers, which open slightly during cooking, allows them to retain the sauce and make it an ideal format for creamy condiments. For example, they combine well with butter and sage, with pesto (Genovese or its Tuscan variant, black cabbage) or even with turnip tops.
