    Sicilian Coffa Maiden Sequins Green

    It is inspired by the well-known "Sicana" legend of the "Moor's Head" ... The "Girl“…precious detail that emphasizes the famous ceramics of Caltagirone.

    The legend tells of a love. Even before a meeting. The one between the eyes of a young Moor and a beautiful girl. He walked, she, on the balcony, taking care of her flowers. The young man fell madly in love with her and decided to declare himself to her. The young woman, struck, reciprocated her sentiment.

    The young Moor, however, was already a husband and father and his family awaited him in the East. The girl, on the other hand, couldn't accept the idea of ​​letting her love go away.
    He waited for the night. He killed the Moor and cut off his head. He made it into a "grasta", a vase for flowers or aromatic plants. From that day on he took care of it and his tears nourished the plant until it grew so luxuriant and beautiful as to make the other inhabitants of the neighborhood wish to have a similar one. And so it was that the terracotta vase in the shape of a dark brown was born.
