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.
Risotto alla Milanese is a classical dish from Milan. The story dates back to 1574 when the daughter of master glassmaker, Valerio of Flanders, was to marry her father’s assistant, whom Valerio had nicknamed ‘Zafferano’ due to the young man’s love for and use of the spice – including the glass windows of the Cathedral of Milan. To celebrate his marriage, friends of ‘Zafferano’ prepared a dish of rice colored with saffron as a joke which led to the timeless success of the traditional dish.
