Cabbage is, like most everything else in Italy, both seasonal and regional. The leafy head cabbages are more of a northern thing because they do best with cold winter temperatures of a sort that are rarer in the south.
And yes, heads of Savoy Cabbage are beginning to appear in the markets. Given that it's quite soon for them, I'm not sure if they're Italian, but they are nice. A couple of ideas:
- Savoy Cabbage with Walnuts and Onions, Verza Con Noci e Cipolle
- Rice and Savoy Cabbage Venetian Style, Risi E Verze Alla Veneziana
- Savoy Cabbage and Sausages, Verze e Luganega
