(ANSA) - ROME, OCT 25 - Italy makes a quarter of the world's pasta, farmers group Coldiretti said on World Pasta Day Monday.
    The Belpaese accounts for some five billion euros worth of the global production value of over 20 billion euros, which has risen during the COVID pandemic, the group said.
    Italians have started making past at home again with the pandemic, it said.
