Sun-dried tomatoes are the real starting point of the history of tomatoes in Italy. In fact, as they ripen in the middle of summer, tomatoes could be dried in the sun without too much difficulty as early as in the sixteenth century. It was enough to expose them to direct sunlight for some days. For this reason, from May to September, the courtyards of southern Italy were filled with towels covered with tomatoes cut in two or four parts and exposed to the sun for some days.
