Corzetti, decorative Ligurian pasta coins whose name likely means "little crosses,” were documented as Pasta Design early as the thirteenth century. Early designs are thought to have featured a Genoese crusader cross.
During the Renaissance, prominent Ligurian families would have their coat of arms carved on one side of the stamp with symbols such as a sheaf of wheat or a flower blossom on the reverse.
Neutral hard woods such as beech wood (faggio in Italian), maple, apple, and pear are best for the molds. Because the thin disks dried well, they were a good food for Genoa’s sailors, who were off at sea for months.
