There will be no spaghetti, fettuccine or penne in Italy when the country goes on its first-ever pasta strike.

Italians are giving up on their favourite food on September 13 because of a 30 per cent price increase in pasta.

Other staples such as coffee, mozzarella and bread are also rising in cost - leading to the average household paying an extra $1700 on their yearly shopping bill, Telegraph.co.uk reported

"Giving up pasta for the day will be a symbolic gesture," a consumer group spokesman said.

"Italians should not buy any pasta on that day, and try their best not to eat it at home."
