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. Passed down from father to son for five generations, the Fabbri family has handed down its production knowledge and secrets.
Alongside pasta making, each owner has scrupulously preserved the physical heritage handed down by his father, leading to the creation of a rich collection of vintage objects. Giovanni Fabbri, the proud owner and fourth generation of the family, decided to create a Museum that gathers more than 400 objects to date, in addition to a wide range of period books and documents.

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.
