Crosetto, crozetto

PAT - Traditional Agri-Foodstuffs

Disk-shaped durum wheat fresh pasta, with pictures stamped on it through special tools (wooden stamps).

Production area: the whole hinterland of Chiavari and Genoa

Curiosities: in the Levante Ligure the word "corzetto" (or "crosetto" or "crozetto") means a typical good, beautiful and curious pasta. The corzetti are a sort of round lasagnette of ancient origin; their name seems to come from "croxetta", meaning small cross, the sign which was usually stamped on them.
Due to their beauty, the corzetti were served during the official dinners of the noble families that used to stamp their coat of arms on them. Today they are smaller and during the wedding banquets the corzetti are served with the initials of the newlyweds or of the most known producers stamped on them.
Corzetto is also the wooden stamp used to create the decorations that characterize this traditional pasta.
