The Chitarra (pronounced key-tahr-rah) is a pasta maker believed to have been invented in the Chieti, Abruzzo region in central Italy around the 1800s. The Eppicotispai chitarra (guitar in Italian) has strings set 3mm apart on one side for angel hair, 5mm apart on the other side for fettuccine. In the center of the device is a slanted board designed to allow the cut pasta to slide off easily once it's been cut by the strings. Simply use the rolling pin, flattening and pressing the dough through the wires.

An artisanal product made in Italy of natural wood. Handwash recommended.

 

Dimensions of cutter:
Overall size of wooden part 8-5/8" x 17-1/4"
17-1/4" turns into 18-9/16" when you add the protruding metal screws (on one side of cutter; used to tighten the wire; length of 18-9/16" taken when the screws have been turned till the wire is tight)

(What looks like multiple wires is a single wire wound around and around the length of the cutter.) The spaces between the wires are kept equal by notches at the end of the wood at the spot where it touches the wires.

Space between wires on one side of cutter is 1/8," for cutting out spaghetti
Space between wires on other side of cutter is 1/4," for cutting wider strands of pasta called tagliatelle.
