ITA -In the first decades of the 1900s, Rieti was the home of world grain farming thanks to the work of the great scientist Nazareno Strampelli. It is precisely in this area that he started his genetic research, which led him to create grains destined to obtain important results in every agricultural area of Italy and most of the world. Among the many varieties of Strampelli grains, the longest-lived one is certainly the “Senatore Cappelli”, a durum wheat selected to withstand the arid climates of the south and also tested for a long time in Sabina. More than a century after its creation, this hard cultivar is still used for pasta making and bread making, with not a few appreciation even in haute cuisine. In this case the “Senatore Cappelli” pasta was produced in purity and with grains grown in Sabina. News from “Strampelli: the green revolution by Roberto Lorenzetti. Rieti, 2012 ".
