They have a spiral shape: they are 1.614'' long, betweeen 0.053''-0.058'' thick, with a 0.393'' diameter. Long ago, Fusilli were made with a traditional method, passed on from mothe to daughter, by twisting with a swift and confident movement of the hands, a "saghetto" around a knitting needle. This movement resembled the one of the spinning machine. The word "fusillo", as a matter of fact, comes from " fuso", spindle or rod typical of knitting.
