    The term pizza was first recorded in the 10th century, in a Latin manuscript from Gaeta in Central Italy.[1] Modern pizza was invented in Naples, Italy, and the dish and its variants have since become popular and common in many areas of the world.[2]

    Everyone wants to claim Columbus, except, of course, the Amerindians. Get in line.

    The invention of noodles may have been Chinese, or maybe as two very old agricultural societies it was "convergent" discovery. Regardless, we have brought it to perfection. Last count, we have 350 different varieties.

    Likewise, tomatoes came from the New World, but tomato sauce is Italian.

    In my view, Galileo is the greatest contribution to the world from Italy. How is he not on the list? At any rate, there are so many great contributions from Italy, it is hard to choose from among them. From your list, I would choose literature.
