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. In times gone by, Benevento was a strategic site for the ancient craft of the miller. 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.
