Mr Alessi and the giant teapot

In Uncategorized on March 12, 2011 at 5:06 pm

On Thursday I did a day trip to Milan to put together a feature on the wonderful Mr Albert0 Alessi, the third generation of his family to take the reigns of the tableware and gadget making company known for its quirky designs. It was a long day, not just the flights but the hour’s drive to the factory and then on to his home on the banks of the beautiful Lake Orta ( and back again to Milan Malpensa for the last flight). And thank you Mrs Alessi for the home made foccacia with rosemary straight from the oven and cups of strong black Italian coffee which provided a kick start for those  of us who had got up before sunrise.
