Considered by many to be an enlightened entrepreneur, Attilio Mastromauro, the founder of Pastificio Granoro, defined himself as “a thinker and an imaginative person with no limits” and was the last industrialist in the sector to have experienced the evolution of the cycle of the production of pasta, from natural drying in the sun up to modern electronically-controlled production lines.
Two values inspired the life and work of Mr. Attilio Mastromauro: his family with his beloved wife Chiara and their two daughters Marina and Daniela, now both in command of the company – and the constant commitment to research. “The search for the best – he explained – is a continuous and daily commitment, and tomorrow we can do better than yesterday”.
The story of Attilio Mastromauro is one that intersects with some great personalities of the twentieth century such as San Pio da Pietrelcina and the statesman Aldo Moro.
In a confession to the “Friar of the Stigmata”, in 1961, he confided that he wanted to start a business that was all his own, leaving the one started at the beginning of the century by his father Leonardo. The friar’s response was: “Go son and build your factory. It will do well”.
