Mappa di Chiavenna

The Journey Through Time of the Pastificio di Chiavenna

In the heart of Chiavenna, the Pastificio di Chiavenna began its glorious journey in 1868, initially as a Mill and Pasta Factory. This culinary excellence, driven by the passion and experience of the Moro family, has spanned five generations, becoming a symbol of tradition and innovation. In the tumultuous 1960s, the factory moved to a modern facility on the city outskirts, continuing to pass down the art of quality pasta making.

Throughout its extraordinary evolution, the Pastificio di Chiavenna has established itself as a European leader in the production of Pizzoccheri della Valtellina PGI, which since 2016 have been awarded the prestigious PGI label. This excellence extends to a variety of pastas made using buckwheat and rye, fundamental elements of our culinary identity. Moreover, our Pasta Factory stands out as a leader in the production of dietary and children's pasta, collaborating with renowned international brands.
