Spaghetti Alla Chitarra Italian Pasta di Gragnano Organic IGP

Whether it's scarpariello or garlic, oil, and chili, spaghetti is one of the Italian tradition. Spaghetti Alla Chitarra is made traditionally according to the ancient Gragnano traditions. This pasta adds more goodness and genuineness of the dishes.


The pasta factory has an interesting historical peculiarity. It is located in an ancient courtyard where pasta was produced from the beginning of the century. A tall industrial chimney stands alone beyond the now crumbling walls of the factory, silently observing the new generations at work in creating a unique product.

Pure spring water, the best grains of Campania, is used. All types of pasta are handmade just like of Gragnano, with a lot of patience and craftsmanship. The highlight is the drying chamber, built in such a way as to recreate the microclimate of Gragnano, so important for the quality of the finished product. Inside, the pasta usually dries lying on small steel rollers, at a temperature that recreates the environment of the ancient city, when the pasta is left to dry outdoors.

Two air pipes flow alternately blow on one side and then on the other for a unique reason. Gragnano straddles two coasts, on one side that of Sorrento and on the other that of Castellammare. The winds coming from the two sides come with typical aromas and flavors, which the pasta absorbs evenly as it drys.

The environment gives the pasta the flavors of the territory, and rightly so can be called the true pasta maker.
