Put the rice in a bowl of cold water, and massage with your hands. Rinse, strain, and repeat one more time. Then strain, and transfer to a medium saucepan with the 8.5 ounces water.
Cover and cook on High heat until the water boil. Turn the heat to very low and cook until the water has absorbed (about 10-15 minutes). Remove from heat, keep covered, and let cool at least 15 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet in a thin layer.
Meanwhile, stir the 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan and heat over medium. Cook until the sugar is dissolved, and set aside. Pour over the rice cooling on the baking sheet.
For the hand vinegar
Stir the 1 cup of water and 1/4 cup rice vinegar together, and set aside.
Stir the olives, capers, and garlic into the rice. Set aside.
Line the bamboo mat (if using) with plastic wrap or a reusable baking liner. Dip your hands in the hand vinegar, and arrange 6 slices of the beef salami on the mat, overlapping about 1/4 inch.
Top with a handful of rice, leaving a 1 inch space from the edge. Top with a few slices of provolone and mozzarella. Then sprinkle with celery leaves.
Roll into a log, and slice into 6 to 8 slices. Secure with a toothpicks if needed.
Repeat with remaining ingredients, and enjoy!
