Historical origins
Mushrooms have been know to man for ages: the first depiction of this product appears in a fresco which survived the Pompeii ruins; after all, that the ancient romans knew about mushrooms and that they appreciated them as delicacies, is attested even by the name of one of the most prestigious of them: Amanita Caesarea (i.e. dedicated to Caesar), or good ovule.
