THE HIGHER YOU CLIMB,
THE FURTHER YOU CAN SEE
Fonni is located at a higher altitude than any other town in Sardinia. This evocative settlement in the Barbagia region rests on the northern slopes of the Gennargentu massif, surrounded by a fabulous horizon and by the light-bathed summits of the mountains that overlook the large valleys below.
Here, the Urrai family name and the working of typical bread have been intertwined since time immemorial: everyone here appreciates the great experience accumulated by Sunalle, the Old Bakery. In 1991, Sara and Maria decided that, as well as being relatives, they could also be partners in their own business. Leveraging the entrepreneurial spirit of Maria’s husband Antioco, they decided to take over an existing bakery in Fonni, giving rise to a family business that, over the years, has evolved to become the leading name in the production of pane carasau in Sardinia.
Thanks to the support of Sara’s husband, Fabrizio, the company has implemented various solutions geared towards modernising the production process, while always affording the greatest respect to the traditions of a flatbread that is very much a symbol of the island.
