A FAMILY HISTORY
Our pasta’s story is the story of our roots, of our family.
The company was founded in 90s by our father, Giovanni Castiello. He was the authentic master pastamaker, lover of tradition, scholar of quality.
We are the next generation: women of pasta.
We grown with the firm, learning secrets and knowledge from pastamakers, creators of pasta.
From their wised hands they created a product that, for babies who we were, was such a little miracle.
We had not followed their traces, but our father’s actions. Today, thanks to his teachings and our curiosity, we know all sides of pasta production.
Maestri Pastai is such a very big family: a team of qualified pastamakers is a tour side from the foundation of the company, with this family we can share our company values and love for living simply.
Behind an authentic artisanal pasta, we have artisans that work with a lot of attention and – sure – a lot of passion.
We always select the best wheat semolina and knead it with fresh water from our mountains.
Our pasta is bronce wire-drawing technique, with slow drying, caring about particular shapes.
We follow ancient methods of working and follow each step of work: from the dough to the packing.
It’s an ancient knowledge, and we tell it with passion.
