About us

«Every package of pasta will gain credit from the previous one».

With this forceful message to his 83 collaborators, Benedetto Cavalieri inaugurated his Mill and Pasta Factory with the specific intent to produce first choice pasta. It was July the 7th 1918.

Manufacturing Process

The Founder developed a method called “Delicate Method”

because it permits to preserve the nutritional values of the durum wheat, its taste and typical flavour and a completely natural consistency which is still so highly esteemed by gourmets.

Our Products

Durum wheat semolina pasta and organic whole wheat pasta:

32 cuts made of durum wheat semolina, among which you can find the famous Spaghettoni, Ruote Pazze and…
8 cuts made of organic whole wheat, naturally rich in fibre and with a noteworthy chewiness when cooked.


My favorite for its excellent grain flavour and delightful chewiness.

The average pasta found in supermarket is probably as close to Benedetto Cavalieri’s as an off-the-peg suit is to one that’s been tailor-made. Taste the difference !
