Rigatoni is one of the many variations of Maccarone, one of the oldest formats born in Naples. Faella selects only the best semolina for its artisanal pasta, using only the finest flour, to always ensure an excellent yield.

Thanks to the bronze drawing, the right roughness and porosity of the walls obtained. This allows the sauce to adhere to the paste, flavoring it, and enhancing the taste.


How it is Made

Drying plays a decisive role in quality, as it takes place very slowly in the Faella pasta factory, for two days and at low temperatures, something impossible to occur in an industrial pasta factory. The Rigatoni is packaged in the traditional porcelain paper bag, to keep the organoleptic qualities intact over time, they are also very good for a tasty gift.

The Rigatoni is a particularly versatile and at the same time original, which traditionally favors corpos sauces



The city of Gragnano has microclimatic conditions as well as professional knowledge that was handed down from the past, is famous worldwide for the quality of its macaroni. Since the beginning of the 1800s, there were over 70 pasta factories.

The semolina obtained from durum wheat which is most suitable for the type of production process. After mixing with water (from the sources of the slopes of Mount Faito) and the bronze die (to have the necessary surface roughness), drying during the production phase is responsible for the final quality of the pasta and in particular the taste that makes get recognized from afar.

This process is necessary for its conservation. The pasta matures slowly thanks to a bacterial activity that is luxuriant as the heat treatment to which it is subjected and therefore the longer the drying time is. Fermentation processes take place that gives rise, between the other substances, to organic acids (in particular lactic acid) and aromatic composites, whose recognition, to sensory analysis, allows us to distinguish and appreciate artisanal pasta.
