Spaghetti originated in Naples and got their name from Antonio Viviani in 1842, as they looked like small pieces of string, from the Italian word "spago". Originally they measured 50cm in length however due to time and space related needs, they have been shortened until they reached their current length of 25cm. Nowadays Barilla Spaghetti No 5 is synonymous with Italian cuisine everywhere; their sinuous and elegant shape is irresistible, as is the charm of rolling them around your fork.
Thanks to their traditional diameter, which is intermediate amongst all the long pasta cuts, Spaghetti are extremely versatile: from the most traditional to the most challenging recipes, Spaghetti is a perfect dish for every occasion.
