Luigi D’Amico firm was set up in the middle of the 19th century in the old town centre of Pescara, called Corso Manthonè. The enterprise sells alimentary products and other items, first of all wines, grain and saltwater fish. Luigi D’Amico, who carried on the commercial activity of his father Biagio, focuses its business prevalently on alimentary products, especially those more refined. He began to make a kind of cookie as he opened the coffee bar “IL RITROVO DEL PARROZZO”, being inspired by an ancient recipe of Abruzzo countrymen: a maize bread, called Pane Rozzo, semi-sphere shaped and cooked in a wood-burning oven. The cookie Pane Rozzo version by Luigi D’Amico reproduces the yellow colouration of maize bread with the eggs one, keeps the semi-sphere shape unchanged and covers its mixture with a fine chocolate coat in order to imitate the characteristic Pane Rozzo dark scorches obtained through its wood-burning oven cooking. The cookie is called PARROZZO, following the exact suggest by Gabriele D’Annunzio, becoming the main character of many literature and art pages: Luigi Antonelli, comedy writer and art critic, wrote Storia del Parrozzo; Armando Cermignani, outstanding ceramist, made the drawings and the colours of the box; the humanist Cesare De Titta wrote the “Canzone del Parrozzo”; Tommaso Cascella painted the pictures which decorate the rooms of RITROVO DEL PARROZZO.
