Carla Squatrito

Featuring WNPR’s Faith Middleton and Carla’s Pasta founder and president Carla Squatrito, the new documentary Carla’s Pasta: An American Success Story comes to CPTV on Thursday, June 22, 2017 at 8:30 p.m., at which time it will also be available to stream on this page!

It all began in Torino, Italy. There, as a young girl, Carla fell in love with the art of pasta. She moved to the U.S. in 1968 for love, starting a journey that resulted in her business – a business based in Connecticut – becoming one of the largest filled-pasta companies in the world.

“What my mother has done in one lifetime is extremely unique in my eyes,” said Carla’s son, Sandro Squatrito. “When you start with a woman growing up in World War II traveling to a foreign country, knowing no English, and creating a successful business – it’s staggering.”

Carla’s Pasta: An American Success Story features interviews with Carla and those who know and love her most: her family.

“Her example is one that I think many people could use as inspiration,” Sandro added. “We are overjoyed to share her story and hopefully inspire other young women to pursue their ambitions.”
