Why does pasta come in different shapes?


I've always wondered why pasta comes in different shapes. Is it simply to look a certain way, or does the shape make the pasta taste different?

    So I guess there is a bit of difference in the past dough itself. I knew some were made with egg and others not, but I can see that different kinds of wheat could make harder or softer noodles. So are 'hefty' noodles (penne ) made with semolina?
