"Fusillo" is a southern word to indicate a kind of pasta similar to a spindle used and in order to shape it in its spiral shape it was used a knitting needle. Fusilli can be long or short: from the sheet of pastry were cut stripes long about 20 cm and with the hand rolled up on the needle. Other dialectal denominations in the different regions of Italy are: curls in Calabria, incannulate in Puglia, turcinateddi or fusiddi in Sicily, maccarones a ferritus in Sardegna. Once women were skilful at manufacturing fusilli, still in Gragnano, the city of Macaroni, this tradition still remains and some families transformed it in a trade business, selling it on holidays or on demand.
