During the siege laid to Milan in 1160, Barbarossa destroyed a huge part of the area around Abbiategrasso, affecting particularly the town of Ravello, located in the area which is nowadays called Bruciata, near Albairate. An old mill was the only thing which survived to the devastation, due to the fact that it was surrounded by a little watercourse which prevented the flames to spread out. From 1910 on, that mill is property of the Tarantola family which created a rice factory that is nowadays one of the most important factories in this area. The mill has always ground corn and used the so-called “pestoni” pushed by water to work the rice out. On the arrival of Giovanni, Cesare and Luigi, in 1987, the factory has begun to deal exclusively with rice. New machineries based on an up-to-date technology were introduced in order to offer high quality products.
The high quality of rice produced in the “Tarantola della Bruciata” rice factory is acknowledged at an international level; that is one among the first Italian rice factories which received the Demeter control and quality mark to sell that variety of rice which is produced in a biological and biodynamic way, without using any chemical substances.
