Gentile still retains today, in the era of advanced technologies, the methods of artisanal production, attention to every single detail, from the selection of raw materials and the control of the phases related to production.
The context in which the pasta factory was born is that of a small town dedicated to the production of pasta since the sixteenth century, a time when every family was somehow involved in this activity. Walking through the streets of the city today you can still see how the architects, who designed neighborhoods and buildings in the nineteenth century, conceived everything to favor the production phases, in particular the drying that was done on the street in the light of the Campania sun , enjoying the breeze that came from the Gulf of Naples.
All the formats produced are bronze drawn, among these you can find the great traditional classics, such as paccheri or fusilli and new original formats. It was precisely the desire to experiment that allowed one of the company's most famous formats to be born today: SpaghettOne, a 2.7mm diameter spaghetti.
The flagship of the production has always been the Fusillo, entirely handmade. From a simple tagliatella the "fusillare", with a knitting needle, roll up under the forearm noodle after noodle, giving it a helical shape, enhanced by the diversity of each individual fusillo.
