THE CAVALIERI FAMILY BEGAN FARMING WHEAT IN SELECT FIELDS IN APULIA IN THE EARLY 1800’S. THEY WERE MILLING THE GRAIN BY THE 1870’S. Benedetto founded the pasta factory in 1918, dedicated to the production of the first choice, artisan pasta using the best grain, innovative processes, and up-to-date machinery adhering to the time-honored “DELICATE METHOD”. He introduced a method for drying the pasta using hot water heaters and fans rather than drying it on racks in the streets. His dedication to quality has been passed down through five generations.
