Giovanni Assante says that the artisan pasta is the sentiment of those who produce it, is its soul, its culture, its sensitivity to beauty and good, is the musicality of water, earth, fire and air. He is not a son of art, rather an intellectual of the earth.
After studying at the University of Cassino and Naples, Faculty of Philosophy and Letters, Assante moved to Mato Grosso. Returning to Naples, he found a job at Gerardo di Nola a company of great prestige, as commercial director, brimming with charm and history. So, after the close of the headquarter of Castellammare and after many years of work, Giovanni animated by a passion for pasta, start to recover the market.
The idea was to restore the proper honor to pasta Gerardo di Nola. He starts a research to make shorten and improve the supply chain, with the aim of using only Italian raw materials. Promotes and shares the first steps in the communication of artisan pasta.
Today, Giovanni, Ada and Mariaelena, along with their amazing team, have realized the dream of bringing together the Gerardo di Nola in the heart of Gragnano, the city of the pasta.
