The San Nicola factory is located, it is very often still nature that dictates the pace and decides when conditions are right to make what has always been the ambition of its founder, Luigi Notari: to make the “best ham possible”.
Born in 1926 in Agna, a small village on the slopes of Monte Caio, Luigi Notari, like many young people from his generation, left home when he was young for the big city of Milan, where he made his fortune and where many of his countrymen have remained for their whole lives.
However, his connection with where he grew up, which had little to do with a metropolis in the midst of its own economic boom, never left him, and in the late 1970s, it brought him back, returning home from where he had left years earlier.
San Nicola da Tolentino (St Nicholas of Tolentino) is the patron saint of Agna and Luigi Notari was convinced that he had guided him in many decisions. So he decided to pay tribute to him by naming the company after him.
