Sicilian ‘Testa Di Moro’ vase handmade by Giacomo Alessi. These vases are typically found adorning balconies of old villas across Sicily. The ‘testa di moro’ ceramic craft dates back thousands of years.
The story behind the tradition is one surrounded by mystery, romance and revenge. Giacomo Alessi preserves this ancient tradition by creating his ceramics in his hometown of Caltagirone which is best known as the city of ceramics to locals.
We’re so excited to offer one of these beautiful vases that captures the spirit and history of Sicily.
