Come explore the treasures of the museum of Tuscan pasta and peasant life

A piece of history that allows us to relive a bit of our past, celebrated in our pasta production that has remained unchanged for more than 100 years.

The museum was created thanks to the love and passion of its founder Giovanni Fabbri

Its history began 125 years ago from a private collection which was then enriched thanks to various donations from our fellow citizens and acquisitions from the company owners.

Today the Museum is home to more than 400 items from the second half of the 1700s to the first half of the 1900s.
