The love for the white art and the bread making is a family trait. Several artisans’ generations put their experience and creativity to the service of Antico Forno Roscioli’s customers. Today the not easy task of satisfying every day Romans’ taste (and not only Romans’) is entrusted to Pierluigi and Alessandro: they have to carry the “baton” through simple and authentic rituals, like baking bread every morning, listening to our customers’ demands and stories, giving them a smile and a sincere hello. Our secret? …Maybe it’s in our philosophy, in considering our job not actually like a job, but as a real art.
Our story is intertwined with the history of the city, and it starts when Marco Roscioli buys out a very ancient furnace – whose original structure dates back to Rome in 1824 – to give every day to his countrymen the best bread possible. Many years have passed, and to the Antico Forno Roscioli arrived Anna Pierluigi, Alessandro and Maria Elena.
We have a story made of everyday moments, of encounters with generations of customers and friends, of smiles after a taste of our bread or our pizza. It ‘a family story also for the close relationship we have naturally established with our historic customers.
Our goals wouldn’t certainly be possible without two key ingredients: tradition and evolution.
Tradition is in the ingredients, the result of careful selection, and in the techniques, that we pass on from generation to generation.
Evolution because we have been able to renew our Antico Forno, adapting it to the new technologies, and for our ability to offer always tasty news to our customers, while maintaining stable our most famous products, savory and sweet, that we bake every day to meet your demands.
Creating a good bread is not something easy. It requires knowledge of raw materials, of the kneading techniques, of the leavening and maturation times. But above all it requires passion.
Our doughs start from afar, from the selection of quality ingredients. We try use always and only the rougher flours because they offer a higher intake of minerals and are richer in taste. They allow us to use less salt in the mix, to increase hydration and to lengthen the time of leavening and maturation, making our products easier to digest. The taste of our bread doesn’t derive from the addition of flavor enhancers, but from a deliberate choice to use only organic salt of the salt pans of Paceco, in Sicily, from the use of high quality flour and from the work made with the “biga” and the yeast base.
In the bread making, the protagonists are the ingredients. If they are of quality, and if passionate and experienced people manipulate them, it becomes almost “natural” to churn out a great bread every day.
