Durum Wheat Semolina Fusilli, made according to the biological method, goes “beyond the biological philosophy", demonstrating a profound respect for the people who inhabit this territory. The Girolomoni® pasta is produced in the pasta factory of the Girolomoni family located in Montebello (PU) with Italian raw materials and water from a source that has no industrial agriculture upstream. In addition to practicing a method of farming that does not involve the use of synthesized chemical substances, on the hill of Montebello, farmers use almost exclusively energy from renewable sources. Once get the flour from the milling of durum wheat, it is mixed with water to create a smooth dough. After the drawing process to give the desired shape, Fusilli are left dry for about 8 hours in order to retain entirely the nutritional properties of the wheat in the pasta.
The activity of the Mutual Company Gino Girolomoni® began in 1971 with the founder who, as mayor of the town of Isola del Piano (PU), commenced promoting initiatives to enhance and support ancient farming society, and organized courses and international seminars on biological agriculture. In 1977, these early experiences allowed the birth of the Agricultural Co-op Alce Nero®, who, after having sold the brand in 1995, changed its name to Gino Girolomoni Agricultural Co-op®. With its thirty members and thirty-five employees, Gino Girolomoni Agricultural Co-op® has contributed largely to the organic farming development in Italy.
