Panzani was born the day Giovanni Panzani, a young grocer from Parthenay decided the world needed a traditional pasta. The year was 1946, and young Giovanni took up residence inside the family loft, bent upon making pasta the old-fashioned way: by hand. It would take him six hours to prepare 20 kilos. While he was clearly in no hurry to prepare his pasta, he made up for lost time by pedalling his wares on the family bicycle, armed with nothing but a bicycle bell. Over the next 20 years, his service offering grew (he started making his own tomato sauce), and with that, his market. Finally, the world could sit down to healthier and traditional pasta, and Giovanni could finally retire the old family bicycle.
