Pasta production is an art which needs a manufacturing through complex phases, linked by a thin balance. Every food element is selected, from the production of wheat Senatore Cappelli, choosen at the origin and grown up without chemical fertilization, to the water which is taken from Catria and Nerone mountains.

Every steps of this process is linked to others and all are fundamental; wheat quality, dough’s realization with the right humidity, bronze die plate extrusion, slow drying, natural cooling and manual wrap are crucial for the realization of the best product. Durante’s Pasta is designed and developed with homemade care with the aim of reach excellence without seeking to industrial production.
