Famiglia Martelli has been producing pasta in Lari, near Pisa, since 1926. Pasta Martelli is handmade and dried at low temperatures for about fifty hours. It comes in five different shapes: penne classiche, spaghettini, maccheroni di Toscana, fusilli di Pisa and spaghetti, my favorite.
Croxetti (sometimes called Corzetti) is a type of pasta that originated in Liguria during the middle ages. It is coin-shaped and both sides are decorated with intricate patterns.
