History

Legend has it that pasta was introduced to Italy by Marco Polo in the 13th century when he explored the far east. But historians can trace the history of pasta back further in time. In the 4th century there is an Etruscan tomb showing a group of people making what appears to be pasta. Since this early discovery, Italy have taken pasta to another level.
