Quality is the goal to be achieved every day, starting from the great tradition of the territory, from a past of incredible pasta makers, wonderful raw materials, endlessly repeated, punctual, skilled gestures. Today the tradition is renewed, through a new vision of production, ready to satisfy larger and more competitive markets, bringing the great Sicilian quality everywhere.


Pasta is a miracle of craftsmanship. Skillful gestures, always the same, the bronze dies that give a rough product, capable of marrying with any condiment, the correct drying time to return an intact, tenacious pasta.

The next step is to ensure the same, healthy and traditional process.This is Donna Itriya’s challenge: a technologically advanced production that does not depart from what the artisan tradition has given us.



Research has led to the choice of cutting-edge innovative technologies. It is the modern revival of craftsmanship, with a modern and current entrepreneurial eye.

The standard set is very high, the raw material is selected, followed step by step from the beginning of the cultivation, to the harvest, to the milling.

Efficiency, protocols, attention and control are Donna Itriya’s watchwords, in the entrepreneurial revival of the tradition.



Tria was born from the impulse of a close-knit group of established entrepreneurs and professionals from the Sicilian landscape with a common passion for their land.

Their mission is to promote the authentic gastronomic culture that is an expression of it.

Giving birth to a product is a symbol of excellence and uniqueness, which represents a quality approach to contemporary gastronomic culture is the goal that unites the group.

“Donna Itriya” is a tribute to the “itriya” that saw the light in this very territory. The logo is flanked by the figure of a woman’s profile, a tribute to the fertility of the Sicilian land and a symbol of the family unit that in everyday life gathers to have a meal in the intimacy of the home.

The unity of purpose summarized in this symbol is the desire to propose an excellent artisan pasta, produced with the semolina of the best grains that spontaneously grow on the island, mixed with pure water and dried slowly at low temperature with the patience of the best pasta makers who for generations have loved to take care of this gastronomic, cultural and historical wealth.

Tria, with its Donna Itriya pasta factory, is the bearer of a tradition that has been neglected for too long: the honor and the burden of bringing to light the foundations of the original pasta-making art with the aim of perfecting it through the use of machinery latest generation, able to create a product of impeccable manufacture, respecting its deeply handcrafted character.

Donna Itriya is the tale of the origins of pasta in the world.


Born in the Sicilian capital, class of ‘93, a lawyer by training with a degree obtained in Bologna and with an international specialization in European Union Law and policies and in competition law obtained through an LL.M.

In life Salvo is an entrepreneur, traveler, lover of nature, the arts and boating, eager to spread the excellence of his land around the world, focusing on a product that has always accompanied his life since childhood in the town of Casteldaccia: the pasta.

“My academic and professional career has allowed me to live in different cities and move to different countries, always keeping vivid the memories of my origins, which has become more and more intense over the years, until the choice to return to what I consider the most beautiful and enigmatic place in the world to help reveal the face of a land that has always offered and still has so much to offer.

I am aware that I come from a territory deeply suited to the gastronomic tradition, home to the finest grains; hence the desire to create a product that represents excellence and Sicilian character in the world, to become, together with my partners, an ambassador of our beautiful island and its unmistakable flavors.

Donna Itriya is a rediscovery of the origins, a journey through the senses.”
