THE VALUES OF THREE GENERATIONS
EXPERIENCE AND DEVOTION
Gragnano pasta has over 500 years of history behind it. Today's Pastificio G. Di Martino is built on the history of a family rooted in their territory and traditions and driven by genuine devotion and irrepressible passion. This translates into hard work, craftsmanlike precision, insistence on quality, perseverance against the odds, brilliant intuition and technological innovation that always cares about people and the environment.
As in all stories, that of the Di Martino family too has its heroes, starting with the progenitor of three generations of pasta makers: Giuseppe Di Martino. Due to his family's straitened circumstances, Giuseppe started to learn the secrets of "white gold" production when still a kid. In 1907, at the age of 10, he started work in a pasta factory whose owner had no sons to whom he could hand down his know-how. Giuseppe soon became a "master short pasta maker".
