Davide Oldani (ITA)"Art and artisan have the same roots. Pasta is an artisanal form of art. It’s the art of fine taste, something that changes depending on the ingredients we put on the plate."
Amandine Chaignot (FRA)"I see pasta as a canvas that each chef can use in many ways. It’s an ingredient you can use to express different things, it gives you such freedom!"
Simone Zanoni (ITA)"For me, the art of pasta is about the ability to enhance and transform what is basically a social, everyday item into something artistic."
Paola Navone (ITA)"Pasta is a beautiful example of democratic design. Simple, natural, universal. I think it's a magnificent "creative medium”: it can make anyone feel a little bit like an artist."
Ashley Alexander (AUS)"Like art, pasta can not only evoke emotion and inspiration in the moment but can spark and inspire further creativity and future work."

THE ART OF PASTA
2019 edition’s theme
This year the Pasta World Championship reaches its 8th edition, with the theme “The Art of Pasta”.
Is pasta an art? For us it is.
Each piece of pasta is a small piece of design that combines beauty and taste.
Creating with pasta is like playing with the colours of a painting, the grace of a ballet, or the sounds of a symphony.
It is form and movement, and creates masterpieces.
It is an art, or the sum of many arts.
Pasta is the ultimate art form, it is something simple and essential that can be reinterpreted, transformed and continually revolutionized by the greatest Masters in the world. This is the art that explodes all over the world.
This is the Art of Pasta.
