It is a new and spectacular showcase where visitors are invited to take part to interactive activities. The secret of fresh pastas relies on the preparation process: passion, research, large manufacturersand the knowledge of master craftsmen.

Pasta is one of the most used dishes, because it can be mixed with meat, fish, cheese and vegetables of all sort. Even if first ptototypes of spaghetti were born in China, Italy is the unique territory devoted to pasta, with thousands of regional recipes.
