Founded in 1893 at number 33, Piazza Emilio Landi in Strada in Chianti, Pastificio Fabbri moved to numbers 1-2-3-4 of the same square in the early 20th century, where the “Electric Pasta Factory” was built. In the 1930s, the Fabbri family also owned a mill, bakery and grocery store. And so we also find the professions of miller and baker next to the pasta-maker in the employee register of 1937.
