The Chelucci family has been producing pasta in a traditional way since 1912; the company, founded by his grandfather Edoardo, is still in the historic plant in Piteccio, near a spring of pure water in the scenery of the Pistoia hills.
The origins date back to the early twentieth century, in 1912 the company found its historic site, located near the water source in the village of Piteccio, on the Pistoia hills, where it is still today. The structure originally housed a small paper mill, later transformed into a wool mill and, finally, in a pasta factory, at the hands of a certain Gualtierotti. In 1912 the Chelucci brothers, Edoardo and Terzo, took over the business and expanded it.
After the Second World War, which forced the Chelucci family to stop production and leave Piteccio displaced in Florence, the Chelucci family returned to the company, reactivated production and were one of the first companies in the Pistoia area to resume operations. In the 1970s, Edoardo's nephew, Giuseppe, decided to join the company, just as his father Renato had done, and he is still at the helm: since then expansion began on foreign markets. Chelucci pasta today is a Made in Italy excellence sold throughout Italy and exported to the world. The pasta factory exports to Germany, Holland, France, Spain and Great Britain, where Chelucci pasta is particularly appreciated. Over time the market has expanded further, Australia and the Czech Republic have been added.
