in bianco, i.e., with oil, garlic, parsley, and sometimes a splash of white wine;
in rosso, like the former but with tomatoes and fresh basil, the addition of tomatoes being more frequent in the south.

Palourde, or carpet-shell clams, vongola verace, are used; or the small, Mediterranean Wedge Shell (Donax trunculus), also known as the Tellina or “bean clam”. Both types are also called arselle in Liguria and Tuscany.
