About Us


The company, founded in 1883 has been an excellence over the time due to the quality of its pasta, to the managerial seriousness and the high technical expertise of Ferrara family.

During its centuries-long activity the company has changed many different locations because of the constant production growth. The ancient artisan pasta factory in Cimitile became an industrial factory in San Paolo Belsito and then the industrial pole of today in Nola, all the three in the province of Naples.
