The range of products marked “il Portico delle Misure” comes from the architectural complex built on San Benedetto da Norcia’s church in 1570.It was an initiative led by the municipality and church authorities. Their purpose was to start a sort of cereals market where cereals were weighted trough large containers made of stone. The new measures are the containers that were filled with grains and used as unit of measure, some of them with “rasiere”, a metal spatula hanging on the wall above. Grain trading become as important as farming. We have selected for You the best raw materials in compliance with human and nature, from Italy and especially from our land, Umbria, creating a new brand: ”Il Portico delle Misure ”.
