An extraordinary documentary to touch our reality, the water, the flour, the production guys drying with a stunning timelapse where the stars rotate on to the pasta factory, to the finished product purchased at Eataly in the beautiful setting of Porto Antico di Genova.
Made of an intense month of work, including shooting and editing.

Look out for it this autumn at the Wholefood Market
Depending on the Italian region, the term “Maccheroni” can refer to different shapes of pasta. The “Maccherone di Natale” made in our Pastificio, stemming from Ligurian and Piedmont tradition are processed naturally using bronze dies, and are similar to the typical pasta shape “penne”, with a greater length and diameter and the typical bias cut. Following traditional Genoese recipes, the “Maccheroni” should be served, especially (but not only!) during the Christmas period, in capon broth and accompanied by sausage meatballs, which are considered a good luck charm representing the “Palanche” (money in Genoese dialect). As a tasty alternative perfect for all year round, we suggest serving the macaroni with a meat sauce, a unique dish with authentic flavors, excellent also baked in the oven.
