From the architect. Untraditional mention to Sicily are the strengths of this project that brings a piece of the island into San Salvario district. The shop is conceived as a bright and cosy space, where quality and tastes find their proper place. Interior design is the direct consequence of a deeper reflection upon mood and colours: the agaves reference (Zabbara in Sicilian local dialect) is clear and globally used on the whole identity project.

Furnitures are all designed on purpose with essential lines and colours (no gloss white, MDF natural wood and varnished metal shelves) and have a clear but not flashy reference to Sicilian folklore and traditions: the shelves are simply wine cellar modules transformed into design furnitures, while lamps refer to town festivals.

The space is the perfect setting for an high level selection of foods, wines and other regional products, being itself a tangible transposition of the owner's passion and care towards her land.
