A Family Story
It was 1846 when our horses Bruto, Baiardo and Bello began exploring the land in
Sannio, looking for the best durum wheat. Each journey began and ended in
Benevento, on the historical San Cosimo bridge which allowed the road via Appia
to cross the river Sabato and reach our ancient mill. The water from the river
turned the mill wheels and Antonio Rummo began to make its own pasta in via Dei
Mulini (Mill Street), making good use of the earth's natural gifts with talent
and passion. In times gone by, Benevento was a strategic site for the ancient
craft of the miller. Merchants of the time, who sent their grain from "Capitanata"
(today the province of Foggia) to Naples via Benevento took advantage of this to
transform it into flour of the highest quality. Today, after over 160 years, the
ancient Rummo pasta factory of Via dei Mulini has become part of the old town of
the city of Benevento and testimony of an ancient tradition. It's thanks to this
upheld tradition and the experience of six generations of master pasta-makers
that Rummo Lenta Lavorazione« was born.
