Maria Stefania Peduzzi and her brother Gianluigi Peduzzi, owners of Rustichella d’Abruzzo, also own two progressive pre-K–6 schools in their hometown. At these schools, children work in the vegetable garden, eat wholesome foods and learn all about the traditional cuisine of Abruzzo. In school, the children work in the vegetable garden, eat wholesome foods and learn all about the traditional foods of Abruzzo. Maria Stefania’s work with these kids was the inspiration for developing this very special line of nutritious pastine with Rustichella d’Abruzzo.
Maria Stefania’s work with the kids inspired the ZeroTre children’s pasta line, a collection of pasta cuts tasted, tested and most loved by the schoolchildren themselves.
