Pizzomunno and Cristalda!
Do you know the story of Pizzomunno and Cristalda? It is a popular Apulian legend that dates back to the 15th century. Pizzomunno was a young fisherman hopelessly in love with his dear Cristalda. Both lived in Vieste. Every night, when Pizzomunno went out to sea to go fishing, the sirens tried to entice him with their song in vain. The young man was so in love with his Cristalda that he swore eternal loyalty to her. One night, the sirens, who were particularly bitter because of Pizzomunno's refusal, emerged from the water, dragged his love to the depths of the sea and chained her there. Pizzomunno, shocked and heartbroken, turned to stone and transformed into a sea stack. According to the ancient legend, every hundred years Cristalda emerges from the deep blue sea and Pizzomunno becomes a human once again. The two can thus love each other for one night only – on the 15th of August – before disappearing again.
Our collections of bottles, Pizzomunno and Cristalda, are inspired by this romantic and intense love story, the ardor of the Apulian land and the passion in Michele’s Neapolitan roots.
Pizzomunno is the handmade and hand-painted line of ceramic bottles that celebrates the colors of Apulia, its evocative landscapes and its vibrant shades.
The bottles containing our Extra Virgin Olive Oil are available in three sizes: 100 ml, 250 ml and 500 ml
Cristalda is the handmade and hand-painted line of ceramic bottles inspired by Michele Fiorentino's Neapolitan origins. Naples' folklore, its distinctive culture and the unique landscapes of the Amalfi coast inspired the artisanal workmanship of this line that encapsulates two regions: Campania and Apulia.
