"What was a seed for me is now once again a seed for everyone".
Mariano Mancini (Monte San Pietrangeli, 1908 - 2013) was a curious farmer and an innovative entrepreneur.
He was also a kind-hearted grandfather, who shared and passed down his passions to a grandson who was willing and able to embrace them.
Mariano surely planted a seed in the mind of his grandson Massimo, founder of Mancini Pastificio Agricolo.
Today, what is left of Mariano Mancini is not just his memory: “Nonno Mariano” [lit. “Grandfather Mariano”] is also a new variety of durum wheat.
Developed through a research that lasted for about 7 years, this wheat variety is the tribute to the man who inspired the “Mancini Pastificio Agricolo” project.
For those who will be curious to learn about his and our story, they can find it written in this box, together with a little “taste” of it.
