Molini del Ponte

Filippo Drago is Sicilian grain miller, bread baker, and pasta maker who is revolutionizing the way Sicilia (and Italy) thinks about heritage grains. Filippo works with ancient Sicilian grains from his mill located in the heart of Castelvetrano, Sicilia. Molini del Ponte is the name of his mill and his business is much more than milling native Sicilian grains.In an effort to save ancient grain varieties from extinction, such as Tumminia, Russello, and Perciasacchi, Filippo has helped to unite and organize a group of Sicilian grain growers from whom he buys his grain.
