The Tradition

Gragnano and the White Art

Pasta production - the White Art - that has made Gragnano famous in the world, goes back to XVI century’s end, with the first family – owned pasta factories.

Gragnano inhabitants knew very well wheat processing and they have made it an economic activity: not at random Gragnano owes its name to a “praedium granium”, agrarian property where gens Grania, of Roman origin, dedicated herself to wheat processing, and where later some rebels refuged and founded an urban settlement – “Granianum” - moving away from Stabia city.

It’s a long story, Gragnano pasta’s story, that still today keeps intact the taste of a centenary experience.
