In the heart of Gragnano, in the famous Via Roma, a place that once daily saw the pasta masters teaching the ancient art of “white gold”, it is currently the headquarters of Pasta Cuomo. A company that breathes air of history. A company that traces its roots in the 1840s, a time very long age but rich in experience .
It’s just around 1840 that starts the story of Nicolino Cuomo, known in Gragnano for the production of bronze drawn pasta.
At the time Nicolino, already landowner, in order to increase the production and sale of macaroni, with his brother Crescenzo, bought new land including “the Fusara Mill” on the shores of the Vernotico river from the Marchioness Quiroga.
Following the tradition of Gragnano, Nicolino Cuomo used the old family palace, based in Via Roma, as a pasta factory with a vertical production process: The PerfezionatoMulino e Stabilimento di Prim’Ordine Nicolino Cuomo.
The reason for the vertical arrangement of the pasta factory is due to safeguarding the ancient and tested methods of hand-crafted production and to the typical division of roles– operator for kneading of dough, cutting, drying, packing- to ensure a Higher Quality Product.
Nowadays the activity is reborn with Mariano Cuomo and sons, in the same old places.
He is the guardian of the family tradition that made perfection, the core business of our products and He’s still the creator of pulp production from the prestigious flavor.
Yesterday as today “Excellence” is Pasta Cuomo first rule!
