Commonly known as maccheroni alla chitarra, in the Marche region it goes under the name of stringhetti. Long, rough, square. In ancient times they were made by pressing the dough on a wooden tool, similar to a guitar: from this comes the name “maccheroni alla chitarra” (guitar spaghetti).
Regina dei Sibillini slightly changed the name to stringhette, that in Italian remind of the leather shoe laces, the very same ones used to tie the boots of mountaineers of the old days. The perfect bridge between old and new.
