Marco Polo- Jacob

This article claims that Marco Polo couldn’t have introduced pasta to Italy because it was already around and that pasta is an Arabian dish (Noodles were a different thing.)

This doesn’t mean we have to change the scene because our interpretation was fictional anyway, the audience doesn’t have to know the truth

also, this tells us that Marco Polo came back from China in the year 1279 which we can use for that line in our scene when Tom says what year it is
