The artefact

The spinning top, a wooden toy of the local tradition, is reproduced in its original forms so as to create unusual piggy banks or receptacles for the kitchen of contemporary and exclusive and aesthetic taste. They are individually handmade in terracotta, with a cork, based on the original design of the architect Roberto Virdis.
