The production of pasta started at the end of the XVI century. During the XIX century, the most important pasta factories were in Gragnano. In that period, the Gragnanesi – that is the name of Gragnano inhabitants- were the best exporters of pasta in the world. The pasta factories laid out the pasta in the streets to dry out. The two World Wars caused a crisis in the production and in 1980 the number of pasta factories decreased. There are five pasta factories still active today.

The Oschi population was the first who settled in this territory, but the first urban nucleus was born in the 89 B.C. when the consul Silla arrived to placate the rebellion in the near city of Stabiae.
