Paone 1878 Chitarra No 5 pasta is a thin, flat, and long pasta with a distinctive square end; 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:
Atri Cathedral, Abruzzo
Atri Cathedral, to the north of the Abruzzo region, was built between the thirteenth and early fourteenth century. A stoup in the central nave rests upon a statue of a woman known as “la Troccoletta”, who carries the basin atop her head. The neckline of the woman’s dress is surprisingly low-cut and she is lifting the folds of her skirt up, so her lower legs can be seen. It is said that because she had a flirtatious expression on her face and was holding flowers in her hands, the bishop judged her indecent – and cut her face and the flowers clean off.
