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.

Makes our mornings more special

My husband and I love these colorful, functional mugs! They are comfortable to hold, have just the right of amount of coffee, and the rooster design, which wraps around to the back of the cup makes us smile every morning!

Buongiorno, Indeed!

These are very pretty mugs. I love the bright colors and the lore behind the Roosters in Italy. They also hold a decent sized cup of coffee. I've only put them through the dishwasher once, following the instructions found online at your site, and so far so good!
