THE MARTELLI’S PASTA FACTORY
Located in Lari, nearby the fortress, it produces just four kinds of pasta (spaghetti, macaroni, spaghettini and smooth feathers – “penne lisce”) in an unmistakable yellow-paper package, that are sold all over the world. It takes up to 50 hours to dry this pasta (against just one hour that is needed when pasta is produced industrially). An incredible patience along with the use of carefully selected raw materials and antique bronze drawplates, allow creating special pasta that absorbs seasonings in an exceptional way. The Martelli never publicize themselves and have always relied on “word-of-mouth” marketing.
