The Art of Handmade Pasta

Two artisan pasta makers perform their craft, exploring a beautiful marriage between eggs and flour. Pasta originates in China, but it’s a myth that the concept of combining flour and water was brought to Italy by Marco Polo upon his return from China in the 13th Century. Utensils used for pasta making have been found in Etruscan tombs and South Italians claim it was introduced to Sicily by the Arabs. Still, Italy can claim the King of pasta title due to its strong affinity to the territory, the development of manufacturing techniques and culinary combinations. October 25th is World Pasta Day.
