I tell you this recipe

The nougat is an old sweet. Already at the time Roman times it was prepared and eaten as demonstrated by some verses written by Titus Livius. The Latin poet Marcus Valerius Marziale handed down to us that the cupedia, as it was called by the Romans nougat, it was a gastronomic delight of Sannio. Some scholars attribute the origin of nougat to the Arabs instead.
The name "torrone" derives from the Latin torreo nougat which is the Latin verb to say toast, which was referred to the roasting almonds and hazelnuts, but in De medicinis et Cibis semplicibus, a treatise written by an eleventh-century Arab physician, you refers to a similar sweet to the nougat and called 'turun' ... so maybe the Arabs were in earlier times to export the torrone in Italy and then in Spain.
