- Pastificio Gentile was founded in 1876 in the very cradle of pasta
of pasta, in Gragnano, in a town whose entire structure was conceived around the production of pasta.
The wind from the Gulf of Naples and the perfect exposure to the sun make this the ideal place for the drying process.
Observing and feeling at first hand these perfect natural
conditions, the pasta
maker has thus elaborated the Metodo Cirillo, a process that replicates the natural
conditions of wind and sun inside the pasta
factory to the best of its ability, in order to obtain slow drying
processes that, combined with the choice of the highest quality raw materials, give consistency and properties to a first class artisan pasta.
