Reddit user Sticcia posted a gloriously detailed Italian Pasta Map from Taste Atlas, which accomplishes to primary goals: 1) making us incredibly hungry,
and 2) breaking down popular Italian pasta dishes by city and region

The map even includes photos of each dish, making for simple cross-referencing with the menu and ensuring there are no surprises once your dinner is delivered.
Italians appreciate one of life’s simplest pleasures, pasta, and have concocted it in ways so tantalizingly delicious that travelers come to Italy just for a taste.
To the north are hearty dishes like Lasagne Alla Bolognese and Pizzoccheri Alla Valtellinese. Down south, you’ll find thinner noodles and a lot more seafood.
No matter the region of Italy that most calls you, be sure to follow the map’s golden rule and kick the Fettuccini Alfredo to the curb.
