Valle del Crati durum wheat semolina pasta is handcrafted by working only selected Italian grains; it is bronze drawn and dried at low temperatures, so as to maintain a high content of proteins and nutrients. There Fileia from  Tropea is one of the most popular traditional pasta shapes of Calabria. These are macaroni with an elongated and rolled shape, produced in the province of Vibo, and especially in Tropea, hence the name " Fileja di Tropea ". The traditional manufacturing process is very characteristic: the dough is cut into loaves of about 10 cm and then rolled up, with a skilful and quick movement of the hands, on a thin wire or, as tradition dictates, on a stick obtained from the woody stems of SPARTO, a typical Mediterranean plant. Handcrafted product dried at low temperatures.
