Village of Vinci
Il Villaggio di Vinci
Before the birth of Pasta Lensi in Vinci, Italy, the little Tuscan village in the Florence province, with its iconic vineyards and olive groves, had already made history. It was from this small, scenic village that one of Italy’s most famous residents, Leonardo Da Vinci, lived during the Italian Renaissance. Among his many titles, Leonardo was a painter, sculptor, scientist, inventor and musician who loved the art of food and entertaining.
His inspiration went well beyond painting The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa. He lent his creative juices to the kitchen and developed the first spit-turner and the first barbecue stove.
Long after Leonardo had left his mark, the village of Vinci birthed other artists and artisans, including Pasta Lensi with its Old World methods of creating the perfect pasta with the best, freshest ingredients. Greatness, in many forms, comes from Vinci!
