Paone 1878 Bucatini pasta is a long pasta noodle with a hollow center made from 100% Italian S1 Riserva durum wheat semolina producing an exquisite flavorful pasta with 14 grams of protein.
Domenico Paone, in 1878, shortly after the union of the Kingdom of Italy, built an artisan workshop for the production of bread and pasta and a steam mill in Formia (Italy), together with a fleet of motorsailers for the supply of wheat from the ports of southern Italy. In 1928 he built a square at his own expense to defend the coast, donating it to the city of Formia. After two years, he was made a Knight of Labor. Four more generations of master pasta makers have carried on the tradition of premium pasta making. Today, on the world scene, the Paone pasta factory is one of the oldest and most qualified Italian pasta company. The superior quality Paone pasta line is dedicated to him and to white art and, more generally, to the art told by the unique monuments and wonderful cities of our country.

The Art On The Packaging:
Bernini's Apollo and Daphne
This marble masterpiece by the famous Neapolitan sculptor Giovan Lorenzo Bernini was finished in 1625. It draws its inspiration from the tale of Apollo and Daphne from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, capturing the climax of the story when Apollo catches Daphne. Before he has the chance to do more than touch her with his hand, she has already begun her metamorphosis into a laurel oak. This masterpiece uses alternating full and empty spaces and plays with light and shade to create a highly dynamic scene, drawing the observer completely into this intensely emotional drama. The surface of the marble has been rough hewn where it forms the bark, while it is perfectly smooth on the skin of the two protagonists; in contrast, the rocks emerge as a bare outline.
