From the experience lived by a woman who has inherited the secrets of Italian homemade pasta, at Matelica, in the region Marche, ‘Luciana Mosconi’ pasta was born. From 1994 onwards, it has been transformed in a modern company characterized by an artisanal vocation, specialized in the production of quality dry egg pasta, which today is among the leaders in the premium market. In ‘Luciana Mosconi’ products, the best semolina and fresh eggs combine together in a double – kneading process, so obtaining a pastry that is processed in order to achieve the highest porosity, subjected to static drying and protracted for over 24 hours at very low temperature. The absence of mechanical pressing is one of the strengths of this production process. This way, thermal stress to the pastry is prevented, leaving the organoleptic qualities of raw materials unchanged, so preserving their flavour and fragrance.
Just egg pasta
Luciana Mosconi’s flagship product is just egg pasta. The tough, rough, and porous pastry is the natural result of a process which, in each step, is followed by skilled makers of pasta. ‘Nidi all’uovo’, a range which has been able to reinvent the family of ‘tagliatelle’, are offered in both g 250 and g 500 packs, in no less than 13 variants, from the finest and narrowest cuts to the largest ones, which can be perfectly combined with simple ingredients, as well as enhanced by the most refined matching. Among the new entries of this range, there are two versions of dried egg pasta, with spelt and wholemeal, in addition to the pastry for egg lasagna. The specialty 'Farro e uova fresche’ is produced with exclusive wholemeal spelt semolina coming from the ‘Alto Mugello’, rich in protein, fibres, mineral salts, and vitamins, while the ‘Integrale’ pasta, obtained from intact grains, not deprived of bran and heart, meets every taste, with a superior pastry characterized by high satisfying power. These specialties are rough, porous, pleasantly irregular. They keep the characteristics of intense flavour and quality, typical of the 'Luciana Mosconi method', unchanged.
The goal consists in further growing up!
Marcello Pennazzi, managing director of ‘Luciana Mosconi’, says: «In 2013, our company has established in Central Italy the absolute leading position in the market of long dry egg pasta, with a 27.1 % share in value. Our goal for 2014 consists in further growing through targeted and incisive strategic marketing, driven by quality plus of product and good environmental practices, which have allowed us to achieve significant increases in specific industry niches. At present, the possibility of developing initiatives which allow greater penetration abroad, perhaps through new synergies, too, is in the planning phase. In any case, we will continue to work by following our core values - authenticity, uniqueness, inimitability, transparency, and responsibility - with the aim of becoming, in the near future, an even stronger and more experienced company on the marketing plan, but always focused on high quality, just as we are doing today».
