Making pasta in Licenza

A few years ago I visited this beautiful little town near Rome, and they showed me how to make pasta.

I visited Licenza to write about the survival of pasta making traditions, and a few friendly locals – Mario Di Sepio, Maria Teresa Vallati and Carola Muzi with their families – gave me a hands-on lesson on the subject.

So here are a few pictures on their way of making fettucine, a type of pasta that can be made without a pasta machine or other great equipment. You just need a bit of skills (which I still lack) – and a proper rolling pin.

Apart from the good pasta (that I got to take home!), the town had a really sympathetic air to it, with its 1000 inhabitants and houses that climbed up the hillside. Picturesque, indeed.
