Discover the Inspiration for Buongiorno!
The Medici family is well documented in Italy for a multitude of reasons including an unlikely one; the popularity of the rooster. In 15th-century Florence assassins targeted Guiliano de'Medici but he was saved by the loud crowing of alarmed roosters. In gratitude, Medici had hundreds of glazed clay wine pitchers made in the shape of roosters and distributed to the citizens of Florence complete with the wine inside! The intersection of good fortune and good politics produced an enduring symbol that is a staple of Tuscan decor today.

Thank you Modigliani. After arriving home from Italy and falling in love with Italian stoneware, I was so glad to have discovered that I could purchase beautiful and authentic pieces online. I ordered lovely espresso cups as a gift. I inadvertently forgot to include part of the address and contacted customer support immediately. They couldn’t have been more responsive. My gift arrived within three days and the recipient couldn’t have been happier. I’m so pleased to have discovered Modigliani! Thank you
If the morning expresso isn't enough to bring a smile to your face, these will do the job. The design and colors are so cheerful and the quality is, of course, first class. We absolutely love them.
