While France has its version of nougat, so do other countries. Italy's version of nougat is called the torrone. Torrone is a form of white nougat that is very similar to soft nougat in many ways yet there are some differences.
One difference between French nougat and torrone is that torrone is finished off with white icing on top after it has been made. Torrone also has many more flavors to choose from as it is not uncommon for torrone to be made with chocolate, cinnamon, or even orange mixed into its silky and nutty texture. Lastly, French nougat can be made with either sugar or honey and turron is made only from sugar. While both as similar, these small distinctions make them each particularly unique.
