Designed by Astrid Luglio and Ester Bianchi, the Scarpetta Collection is inspired by the Italian tradition of ‘scarpetta’ (dipping your bread). The universal gesture is very close to the heart of everyone who has enjoyed a delicious plate of pasta and after indulged in mopping up the tasty sauce left on the plate.
Each of the six porcelain-enameled, metal dishes contains a playful composition of sauce stains, food scans and table gestures. The abstract designs represent six diverse regions in Italy and their unique, traditional recipes, all telling an inviting story about the Italian food culture.
A humble dish with noble origins Panzanella is a Tuscan chopped salad of soaked stale bread, red onions, cucumbers and basil which is seasoned with olive oil, salt and vinegar. Some believe the tasty summer dish was born on the farms by peasants who would soak leftover bread with seasonal vegetables from the land, while others associated its origin to fishermen who would use seawater to moisten dry bread, creating a tasty carb for their vegetables.
