La Nicchia was founded in 1949 when Antonio Bonomo and Girolamo Giglio began producing capers on Pantelleria. Their children are committed to carrying on their work, and have entrusted the production to Gabriele Lasagni, whose passion for the study of Pantelleria’s raw materials echoes the founders’ devotion to the island and its natural resources. The name La Nicchia, which means “niche” in Italian, calls to mind both the growth of capers in every cranny and crevice of the island, and the uniqueness of the artisanal foods the company creates.
