Analysed case-by-case in its institutional aspects and in its technical and administrative mechanisms, the study of the bakery sector allows to penetrate - in a fruitful comparative perspective - the complex subject of food supply of the towns of the ancien régime, illuminating the wide variety of government decisions related to the provisions. Since the Middle Ages, bakery winds in the wake of binding provisions and pre-distribution channels and coincides with the final phase of the production process that is embodied in the creation of the desired final product: the bread. In July 1768 the French Minister Du Tillot grants the Ligurian entrepreneurs Stefano Lucciardi a ten-year monopoly (ius privativo) for the manufacture of "venal pasta for the use of Genoa": it is the first important impetus to the spread of the emerging branch production in the Parma area. After a long period in which pasta makers were subordinated to bakers - that makes the case here analyzed quite distinguishing and deserving of further studies -, only in the post-unification period it is possible to see the emergence of modern organized pasta factories according to the factory system. This process launched the journey that, several decades later, will arrive at the bright scenery of the famous Food Valley.
