Discover the Inspiration for Galletto
In Italy, everything seems connected to the Medici family, and the rooster tradition is no exception. Popular legend has it that in 15th-century Florence assassins targeted Guiliano de'Medici but, as they approached his palazzo, the loud crowing of alarmed roosters foiled the attack. In gratitude, and probably to publicize his invincibility and send a message to future assassins, Medici had hundreds of glazed clay wine pitchers made in the shape of roosters and distributed to the citizens of Florence. The intersection of good fortune and good politics produced an enduring artifact that is a staple of Tuscan decor today. Our Galletto Collection celebrates the rooster.Details
