"Fior d'olio" is a little iconic mechanical gem for use with "green & gold" - another name for olive oil. "Fior d'olio" is a cap with a pouring spout that fits into the neck of the bottle, allowing you to pour only as much as you need on your food, while controlling the oxidation process that begins as soon as the bottle is opened. The small glass container that houses it has a second function: to assist professional tasters to sample the oil according to the time-honoured tradition. Designed by Marta Sansoni.
Traditionally, olive oil is used to enhance the flavour of food at the table, making this small device the right size for perfecting the taste of your pizza, pasta or Lasagne.

Alessi draws inspiration from Italian industrial culture to create unique, contemporary products. Collaborating with over 500 designers around the globe, Alessi believes that “a true work of design must be able to move people, to convey feelings, to trigger memories…”
Born in Granerolo, Verbania, in 1916, Carlo Alessi studied technical design at the OMAR institute in Novara. At an early age, he worked in the metal workshop set up by his father, Giovanni, in 1921. In the fifties, he became managing director of the company, introducing a new international dimension, which he developed by working with external designers. He remained president of Alessi until 2009, when he passed away.
Alessi is now a B Corp, a company which strives to maximise the positive impact they have on their employees, the communities in which they operate and the environment, by using the business as a force for regeneration and sustainability.More from Alessi
