Rigatoni pasta produced by the Rigorosa company are made from high-quality durum wheat semolina. Pasta di Gragnano PGI (Protected Geographical Indication Certification) is one of the cornerstones of the culinary tradition of Campania, specifically a real local symbol that finds its roots, as the name suggests, in the city of Gragnano.

Pasta di Gragnano IGP is one of the traditional Italian products whose recipe has very ancient origins and whose tradition has been handed down over centuries. Moreover, since it has been passed on from generation to generation thanks to a precious work of transmission, it can still be found in its original version, without being modified or reinterpreted. This pasta is still produced and processed according to strict traditional methods.

 The Rigorosa company bears this name precisely because all stages of production are marked by the traditional art of making pasta in Gragnano. The word “rigorous” is always present in the company’s work:

– The water chosen for the production of the pasta is rigorously from Gragnano;

– The choice of semolina is rigorous;

– Rigorous is the bronze extrusion;

– Rigorous is the drying process, which takes place strictly in low-temperature cells;

– The result is a type of pasta with a rigorously rough surface that absorbs all sauces perfectly.

The result, therefore, can only be ” rigorously” excellent for a pasta that must be enjoyed rigorously “al dente”!

Gragnano pasta is a certified PGI product, which means that certain requirements must be met to obtain the certification. Among these, it can only be produced in the city of Gragnano using raw materials, such as water and durum wheat semolina coming from the same area.



Rigatoni Pasta di Gragnano PGI is traditionally bronze-drawn. Specifically, the basic ingredients for the production of this pasta are durum wheat semolina and water. Bronze drawing, which follows the creation of the dough, is a process whereby the dough is passed through a bronze die – a perforated template or matrix. The material the die is made from has a great influence on the colour and the rough and porous surface of the pasta. For this reason, bronze drawing is considered a guarantee of quality. After the bronze-drawing process, a series of rotating knives cut the pasta from the holes in the desired shape and length. The pasta is then dried slowly following the tradition of Gragnano. This process results in an elastic pasta that doesn’t fall apart during cooking.
