History of Sicilian Parmigiana:

The term “parmigiana” derives from the Sicilian word parmiciana, plausibly derived from the Latin parma (shield), a word also used for the wooden slats of a window shutter, which is evoked by the overlaying layers of fried eggplant slices. The theory that affirms Sicilian paternity for this recipe is supported by the fact that in this part of Italy the dish is called parmigiana di melanzane (parmigiana of eggplant), not melanzane alla parmigiana (Eggplant Parmesan) as in Emilia – the main noun is “parmigaiana”, while “eggplant” is the modifier.
