Pici is thick, hand-rolled pasta, like fat spaghetti. It originates in the province of Siena in Tuscany; the dough is made from flour and water only. The addition of egg is optional, being determined by family traditions. Alternatively, finely chopped or shredded spinach can be used in place of water; the dough is rolled out in a thick flat sheet cut into strips. In some families, the strip of dough is rolled between one palm and the table, while the other hand is wrapped with the rest of the strip, it can be formed by rolling the strip between the palms. Either method forms a thick pasta thinner than a common pencil. Unlike spaghetti or macaroni, this pasta is not uniform in size and has variations of thickness along its length, it is eaten with a variety of foods, particularly: List of pasta Bigoli Cumian Udon

Schneider Sch-10M

The Schneider Sch.10M was an all-metal, twin-boom, twin-engine French aircraft from the mid-1920s, intended as a bomber and with strong defensive armament. Only one was built; the Schneider Sch-10M was an unusual aircraft in several ways. It was a twin-engine, twin-boom monoplane design built from metal, both its structure and skin made from Schneider's own aluminium alloy called "Alferium", it was intended for bombing, carried photographic and radio equipment for observation, so needed strong defensive armament. It had a cantilever, single-piece, two-spar wing, its covering, like that of the central fuselage and empennage corrugated with a separation of about 75 mm. In plan, the wing was rectangular between the fuselage and booms and straight tapered outboard; the central fuselage was contained three open cockpits. The pilots sat side by side in a wide cockpit over the wing leading edge with one gunner in the extreme nose and the other where the fuselage began to fall away ending at the wing trailing edge.

To improve the defence against attacks from below, the rear gunner could fire through a trapdoor in the floor. The two beams were covered in smooth Alferium. At the front, each had a 300 kW Lorraine-Dietrich 12Db water-cooled 12-cylinder upright V-12 engine driving a two-blade propeller; the radiators were placed on both sides of the cowlings, the fuel tanks were in the booms behind the engines, seen as a safe place in case of attack. Each main wheel of the wide track, tailskid undercarriage was rubber-sprung on a V strut enclosed by a bulged and tapered continuous extension of the boom underside. At the rear the booms were linked by a rectangular tailplane carrying a single elevator; the booms mounted small fins with balanced rudders. The Sch-10M appeared at the Paris Aero Show in December 1924 and flew for the first time in March 1925. There are few contemporary reports on it after the Show.
