Chocolate can become an excellent tool for translating ideas or even making the potential of a culture known. The architect Salvatore Spataro, who has been designing elements of traditional Sicilian culture since 2014, has created a curious collection of miniatures in chocolate that replicate the utensils used by the farmers and fishermen of the Italian island. Thus, we can find baskets, containers for ricotta,vessels, traps for mollusks and seafood, and tools forharvesting figs.
This chocolate collection, Tastami, also has a careful packaging in white and red that explains the origin of each design. As the architect himself explains, “I had the need to transform the bond I had with my land into something concrete and tangible.” Appropriately, each piece is made with the traditional Modican chocolate, a specialty of Sicilian origin that is said to be based on an original Aztec recipe.
