There was a flood in Italy last week and it has now emerged that one of the most historic pasta makers of Campania, the company Rummo, near Naples, had its factories and warehouses hit with a devastating flood. There is a twitter hashtag #SaveRummo and Facebook movement growing to appeal to everyone to buy some Rummo pasta this week to support the company.
It is fantastically delicious pasta of the highest quality, and like so many pastas in the Campania regions, comes in inventive marvelous and historic shapes. You won’t regret the decision to buy and eat it. When I lived in the States, I was able to purchase Rummo at Whole Foods. In the UK, I understand it can be bought at Waitrose and at Lina in London.
Please help save Rummo. It is an important part of Italian history and pasta history – and that is world history!
