Ciabatta (literally: slipper) is an Italian white bread made from wheat flour, water, salt, and yeast, created in 1976 by a baker in Verona, Veneto, Italy, in response to the popularity of French baguettes. Ciabatta is somewhat elongated, broad, flat and is baked in many variations. Ciabatta was first produced in 1982 by Francesco Favaron, a baker from Verona, in collaboration with Molini Adriesi who provided the flour to produce the bread. Mr. Favaron named the bread Ciabatta as he said that the shape of the bread reminded him of the slipper (Ciabatta) of his wife Andreina.
