Orvieto Spaghetti Container

Italian food lovers would love a piece of Italian culture in their kitchen. It is a nice touch to have in your kitchen, especially if you cook a lot of spaghetti.

It is an ideal gift idea too. The ‘Galletto’ or ‘crowing rooster’ in English, is widely recognized as a symbol of good wishes, and blessings for prosperity and well-being.

The Orvieto (or Orvietano) design, which in our shop comes in red, blue, or green is a very old and traditional pattern that originated in Renaissance times from an Orvieto town in central Italy. Every kitchenware product with Orvieto name on it represents local craftsmanship that survived from those days by artisans passing their skills from generation to generation.

It is advisable not to expose your products to sudden and drastic temperature changes to avoid cracking.

More About Orvieto Town

Maiolica (tin glazed earthenware) has been produced in Orvieto since the 13th century. And its artisans were recognised as the master craftsmen (known as Vascellari) across Italy and beyond.

Walking around town today, aim for Pozzo della Cava, as here you can still find the furnace from the 15th century, and the ceramics factory that was used until the 16th century.

The Cathedral – Duomo di Orvieto, is hard to miss too. It stands above all the buildings in the city and is likely take your breath away when you get closer. Decorative tiles on it were made locally and are reflective of the "Orvieto style", unique to this region.
