The word Fugasetta is the diminutive of Fugassa, in the Genoese dialect, that comes from the Latin Focus-Foci or fireplace.

Its meaning is double, referring to the focaccia-mula, or home-made focaccia, used in the countryside in the last war, consisting of half of corn flour and half of wheat flour to which were added animal fats, such as lard.

In conclusion, the only word to give to this delicacy was just “Fugasetta”, understood as a small snack.
