Ciabatta is an Italian bread, which name means 'slipper' due to its shape. It is traditionally made with a wet dough to create an open crumb, but there are regional variations which vary in texture, shape, and crust. The version outside Italy is usually long and narrow with a soft crust, perfect for making toasted panini. This one, however, is slightly larger and has crispier crust, making it ideal as an accompaniment to soup.
