De Cecco 34 Fusilli Description
Fusilli (pasta twists) belong to the very short straight cut pasta format and they are a speciality of the Campania region, in Southern Italy. They have a spiral shape with a 10 mm diameter, a 41 mm average length and a thickness between 1,35 and 1,48 mm.
In ancient time Fusilli were hand made according to a method handed down from mother to daughter, which consisted in twisting a "spaghetto" long thread of pasta, around on a knitting needle with a swift movement of a clever hand. This kind of ability reminded the movement of the spinning machine. In fact the word "fusillo" comes from "fuso", spindle, the rod the spinners used to work with.
