panini is panini, sandwich is tramezzini

Panini is a sandwich from non-sliced bread.

Why can't we use the article 'the' here? Is it just the way that they say things? You wouldn't say 'the sandwiches' in Italian? Just 'eating sandwiches'?

Growing up Italian, I've always called a bread roll a Panino. Why isn't this accepted for Panini as rolls? :(
