On 16 April 1972, in Sasso Marconi (Bologna), the Accademia Italiana della cucina adopted and registered a standard for Bolognese tagliatella of 8 millimeters across, after cooking, which results from raw pasta 6.5 to 7 mm in diameter. A prototype made of gold is being preserved.
In other locations a noodle 8 mm across is identified as fettucini, and the name tagliatelle is given to a much narrower noodle.
Correspondence with Federica Guerciotti, of the secretariat of the Academy, 11 February 2009.
