The history of Verrigni is rich of passion, handicrafts, tradition and innovation. The history of a family able to hand on since 1898, from generation to generation, the love for its land - – Roseto degli Abruzzi - and vocation to highest quality, with no compromises.
Today Verrigni, with the elegant and decisive scents and flavours of Abruzzo, is synonymous of excellence all over Italy and not only.
From Rosburgo, the ancient name of Roseto degli Abruzzi, Verrigni has conquered the world. From the noble families of the city, to the five-star Chefs to gourmets all over the world: this history is a true fairytale.
A fairytale that began in 1898 when the Verrigni family started to produce a type of pasta made with grains ground with grindstones and mixed with water from Grass Sasso and then dried outdoors, hung to bamboo canes. The adventure continued with the experimentation of drying methods through the use of chambers, with forced-air fans and heat sources to create a constant temperature.
Since 2008, with the same passion of the founders, Gaetano and Francesca Petrei Castelli have been managing the company in perfect balance between tradition and innovation with a unique, important objective: highest quality, which is obtained from the selection of the best durum wheat, exclusively Italian, cultivated and mainly harvested in Abruzzo, also in the agricultural holding of Francesca.
