Definition of a Panini
In Italy, panino (Italian pronunciation: [paˈniːno]) is the word for bread other than sliced bread, in which case Italians call it a tramezzino or porco. Examples of bread types used are a ciabatta or a rosetta. The bread is cut horizontally and filled with salami, ham, cheese, mortadella, or other food, and sometimes served warm after having been pressed by a warming grill. A toasted sandwich made from sliced bread is not called "panino" but "toast" (pronounced as "tossed"), or "tosto" (pronounced "tossed-toe") by Italians, and is usually filled with ham and a few slices of cheese, grisandwich press. A popular version of panino in Central Italy is filled with porchetta, slices of pork roasted with garlic, salt, rosemary, and sage.

How is this Holiday celebrated?
This holiday is celebrated by enjoying panini sandwiches throughout the month and sharing them by way of a sandwich meal amoung friends and family.

Origin of this holiday
We did not find out much information about this observance because it looks like it's a fairly new observance. Apparently Sargento Cheese declared that the entire month should be set aside to celebrate paninis.

This holiday is referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that's celebrated.

Terminology
The word panino [pa'ni:no] is Italian for "small bread roll"; its plural form is panini. The word is the diminutive form of pane (bread). In some English- and French-speaking countries, panini is sometimes used as a singular word (like salami, also an Italian plural noun) and sometimes pluralized as paninis.
In Italian, panino refers properly to a bread roll and panino imbottito (stuffed panino) to a sandwich. Paninoteca is the word for a sandwich bar.
Panino is also often used to refer to a sandwich in general.

History
Although the first U.S. reference to panini dates to 1956, and a precursor appeared in a 16th-century Italian cookbook, the sandwiches became trendy in Milanese bars, called paninoteche, in the 1970s and 1980s. Trendy U.S. restaurants, particularly in New York, began selling panini, whose popularity then spread to other U.S. cities, each producing distinctive variations of it.

During the 1980s, the term paninaro was used to denote a youngsters' culture typical of teenagers supposed to eat and meet in sandwich bars such as Milan's Al Panino and then in the first US-style fast food restaurants opened in Italy. Paninari were depicted as fashion-fixated, vain individuals, delighting in showcasing early 1980s status symbols such as Timberland shoes, Moncler accessories, Ray-Ban sunglasses, and articles from Armani, Coveri, Controvento. They were lampooned in the Italia 1 comedy show Drive-in by Enzo Braschi. A track entitled "Paninaro" appears on Pet Shop Boys' albums Disco and Alternative.
