Pastificio dei Campi is located in Gragnano, an exceptional place for pasta production, where industrial development has led to the loss - partial at least - of the magic linked to the art of this white gold. Our firm aims to restore and sustain the tradition of Gragnano pasta IGP, and seeks to do this in a way that respects craftsmanship and traditional production methods, allowing the raw ingredients and stages of production all the time they need to create a pasta of the very highest quality, the best pasta ever.
Spaghetti is the dried pasta shape par excellence and emblem of the Neapolitan table. The name comes from their shape, similar to a thick piece of string (spago). The first reference to spaghetti is found in the Vocabolario Domestico by Giacinto Carena (1846), where it is listed alongside "capelloni, spilloni e vermicelli"; a few years later it appears in the famous Dizionario Tommaseo-Bellini, published in 1861-1879.
