From a Generation of Pasta Makers
Pastificio Antiche Tradizioni di Gragnano is a team of pasta makers and belongs to an ancient family of Maccaronari or Neapolitan pasta makers, now in its fourth generation.
Guardian of family secrets, handed down thanks to the experiences accumulated over the past decades, by his grandfather and father, to work in the major industrial pasta factories of Gragnano, our Master Pasta maker begins the pasta making activity in 1970.
Still today, together with his children, the family tradition is kept alive. The Antiche Tradizioni pasta factory in Gragnano contributes, with passion and skill, to maintaining the reality of the area, which highlights more than “500 years” of pasta production. This history and tradition mean that the town is identified as: “Gragnano- the country of pasta”.
