And not only that, it was named after an Italian art house movie. From Wikipedia:
Romano's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria claims to have first used the name in 1950 in Essington, Pennsylvania, just outside Philadelphia, courtesy of Nazzareno Romano. The pizzeria owner had experimented with "pizza imbottito", or "stuffed pizza", and added ham, cotechino salami, cheese and peppers into a pocket of bread dough.His future brother-in-law suggested he name it after the recently released movie Stromboli, notorious for an off-screen affair between married actress, Ingrid Bergman, and married director, Roberto Rossellini, resulting in a love child.
You may have already known this. We didn't. And you know what? Learning it made us feel strong — cared for, even. Because, as even the most cheesesteak-positive of us is positively weary at this point of DNC cheesesteak human interest pieces (for yea, we are cheesesteak humans, born on the garbagey breeze), we know this: They can co-opt everything. But they will never even think to look for the humble stromboli.
They would not know where to begin.
