A story of the most famous pasta in Istria, the fusi, began during 20th century when grandma Luca from Kanfanar accidentally shaped the fusi while trying to surprise a dear guest with a special meal. As she was making the pasutice, which is another type of traditional Istrian pasta, she came up with an idea to shape the dough in a new and special way. And so, the queen of Istrian pasta was born. Ever since, this pasta has been prepared in Istria for special occasions and celebrations and it is one of the gastronomic specialties everyone who visits Istria should try.
Apart from being a municipality represented by the Istrian ox and the fusi, Kanfanar is also proud to be a home of the artisanal handicraft „Klara Marić”, which was founded in 1987 and has been making top quality pasta since, with a special emphasis on traditional Istrian pasta. The factory pays close attention to selecting high quality ingredients and the chosen production method aims to be as close as possible to the original way of making the pasta.
