Artigiano Fabbri pasta factory

Same family,
same square, same pasta

…for 5 generations. Artisan pasta since 1893

We have made our pasta exactly the same way since 1893, without any changes, passing the company down directly from father to son in Piazza Emilio Landi in Strada in Chianti.

The history of our company began in 1893

When our great-great-grandfather Giovanni Fabbri

moved from Cintoia to Strada in Chianti, a few kilometres closer to Florence, bringing with him the ancient knowledge of his parents who were farmers, millers and pasta makers.


Giovanni Fabbri:

The Founder

Giovanni Fabbri moved from Cintoia and
acquired land in Piazza Landi (thanks to his wife's dowry), where he established his pasta factory with an adjoining mill, bakery and grocery store.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the company was located at numbers 1-2-3-4 of the square. Just like in 1893, the pasta factory still frames the town square today.


The Electric Pasta Factory

The Pastificio passed from using a marble wheel with a
horse to becoming an electric pasta factory, called “hygienic processing” at the time, as can be read in an invoice dating back to that year which can be found in the Fabbri Museum.


Livio Fabbri

2nd generation

Upon Giovanni's death, his son Livio inherited the Pastificio, while his other son Lionello saw to running the bakery and grocery store.


Reconstruction after the war

At the end of the war, the furnace, mill and all the machinery had been mined, and part of the ceiling had collapsed: only the walls remained standing. The Fabbris repaired the damage from the war and started over, with the usual machines, at number 6-7 of the same square.


Renzo Fabbri

3rd generation

At the helm of the company together with his father Livio,
Renzo acquired the first “Cantini” extrusion press to launch a phase of company development. To date, the improved 1958 model continues to be the heart of our production.


The new pasta factory

The Pastificio moved to its current headquarters at no. 18 of the square, where the stables were once located.


Giovanni Fabbri

4th generation

At the age of 16, Giovanni, great-grandson and namesake of the founder of the family business, entered the Pastificio
alongside his father Renzo.


5th generation

Giovanni’s son Marco came to the helm of the company together with their father, as warranted by the family tradition for 125 years.

A knowledge passed down
for 5 generations

For over a century, Fabbri have passed down their knowledge and production secrets from father to son. The excellence of our raw materials, combined with 125 years of experience, guarantee Fabbri pasta a very high quality and a unique flavour.
