The Tortello with pumpkin belongs to a long-standing tradition which goes back to the Renaissance (XVI century), at the Gonzaga and Estensi courts. In that period, the so-called "cappellaccio" began to appear in the recipe books of the Gonzaga court in Mantua. Though with some differences, this delight is prepared in several cities of Emilia-Romagna and in Mantua, where it is called "Turtell Mantovano" and considered a traditional dish.
