|I don't know as much about Italian cooking as I should... is the bread added at serving time so it still has some texture, or cooked into the soup so it melts away and thickens the broth?
Aside from not being able to afford meat, it is a way to use up stale leftover bread. Waste not want not, easy to find this kind of efficiency in traditional recipes, but it's very much lacking in our modern era of convenience foods.
