Life is a combination of pasta and magic.

THE PASTA MUSEUM

the story of our "First cultural".

Il Museo Nazionale delle Paste Alimentari, unico al mondo, è anche un museo “anticipatore”, ossia il primo dedicato ad un prodotto specifico alimentare.

TRADITION

Inside, room after room, you can discover how pasta is made from wheat and what are the procedures used in kneading and drying, both in the ancient artisan process and in modern industrial technology: from "rudimentary machines", such as first stone millstones, to modern mixers.

INNOVATION

We will also discover the all-Italian invention, the most important, which made possible the development of pasta all over the world, namely the creation of "dry pasta". The innovation that has allowed it to be kept in perfect condition for months and even years.

MUSEUM AWARD

National Museum of Pasta

In 1992 the promoters of the Museum conceived and organized, in order to stimulate creativity, recipes and the best information on pasta dishes, an annual competition divided into four sections: Public Education, University, Journalism and Market.

Since 1999, the competition has become a European Award, giving awards to the most prestigious names in journalism and the European market operating in the field of food culture. The awards are held every year in Rome at the “Il Bagaglino” Theater.
