Pasta of Gragnano becomes plane, car or train, a shape designed for children, to let them savour the delight of homemade pasta in a funny and pleasant way. It can be cooked in many ways, the important thing is to invent!
The story of Gragnano begins with a noble Roman "gens" : the "gens Grania", holder of vast estates in this fertile land where they grow, then as now, the "sacred ear and the precious grape."
The ear, symbol of local pasta factories, is also symbol of the city. Pasta production saw its biggest development between the sixteenth and seventeenth century thanks to technological innovations (the mill with millstones) that provided a perfect hydraulic system necessary for the production. Pasta is still an artisanal product, handmade in the family in small quantities by craftsmen. During next century we saw the gradual transition from the small shop to factory where there is still the craftsmanship but on a larger scale. Larger tools, bigger places, a larger number of employees and their greater specialization guarantee a greater amount of product maintaining handmade characteristics.
Pasta thus began to spread beyond the local area, conquering the palates with its unique characteristics.
