If today we can stop on the motorway to eat (or buy food), it is due to Mr. Mario Pavesi: that’s right, that of the Pavesini. It is he, a brilliant entrepreneur, who in 1947 had the intuition to open, at the Novara exit of the Milan-Turin, a shop of his own biscuits where the words “Pavesini” stood immense. It works. So 15 years later, that low building made up of tables and pergola is transformed into the most famous bridge Autogrill in the country. Today the toll roads are close to 7,000 km with millions of hungry workers and families. In each of the vehicles (perhaps, heated by the sun) there is a moment in which one of the occupants proposes: “Shall we stop for a sandwich?”. Lovers of slow travel (and gourmets) indulge in an outing in search of an “off the toll” restaurant, but those who prefer efficiency look for the best on the road. Finding it is not easy: the 426 Italian autososte are victims of a growing homologation. Almost all of them are in the hands of Autogrill, Sarni and Chef Express: objectively, the food enthusiast makes very few leaps for joy, but there are some exceptions that we point out to you.
