The Bomboloni from Versilia are donuts, those fried bread dough bombs in boiling oil.
When the bread dough has the shape of a donut they are the desserts of summer and not only, at the Viareggio carnival, at the kiosks in Viareggio, or even for sale by the screaming “bomboloniii” street vendors.
Once out of the boiling oil they are immersed in the zuccchero and then served on a sheet of paper to eat in the hand, very hot !!! Tasty, pro cholesterol.
The bartenders who came from Altopascio and Valdinievolo took them to Versilia in the post-war period
