Chitarra is a long, thin pasta resembling spaghetti, but with a square cross-section. It gets its name from the tool traditionally used to make the pasta, the "guitar," a wooden frame with a series of parallel wires crossing it (like guitar strings), onto which the pasta was pressed with a rolling pin. The square shape and pourus texture of the pasta allow it to perfectly bind with any sauce. Try with a rich, meaty ragú or a simple tomato sauce.
Three siblings, Gabriele, Barbara and Attilio, learned the antique craft of pasta making from their grandmother Adelina, before opening their first artisanal pasta workshop in Campofilone. Today, Antica Pasta by Marcozzi of Campofilone continues to bring love and care to the craft, producing exquisite handmade egg pasta using select all-Italian ingredients, non-GMO Italian wheat and local, free-range eggs. They are one of 7 original producers from Campofilone, a small town in Le Marche with an antique pasta tradition dating back to the 1400s.
