Design by Stefano Giovannoni, 1999.
Low casserole with two handles in 18/10 stainless steel, mirror polished. Stainless steel magnetic bottom for cooking via induction, gas, and electrical resistances. After "La Cintura di Orione" by Richard Sapper and "Falstaf" by Alessandro Mendini, Alessi entrusted a designer from the new generation with the difficult task of firing the public's imagination by exploring the archaic continent of ?potness?. Stefano Giovannoni, whose style is an explicit reference to a poetry of affections, has brought his interpretation to ancient terracotta pots. Ah, the warmth of familiar aromas in good, big, round pots "with two ears" (as Catullus wrote), here made of functional and practical stainless steel. The ?Mami? series also includes oven dishes and frying pans in pressure-cast aluminium with a non-stick coating, a pasta-set and a pressure cooker, as well as a cutlery service and superb kitchen knives.
The Mami low casserole: for sautéing, pot roasting or braising, and oven roasting. Offered in three sizes.

The Alessi company was founded by Giovanni Alessi in 1921 in Omegna, Italy. Giovanni, a talented sheet metal worker, produced items by hand for the table and the home out of copper, brass and nickel-silver. Giovanni's son Carlo, trained in industrial design, joined him at Alessi and was responsible for many of the designs produced in the 1930s through the mid 1940s.
During the war years, Alessi produced stars for uniforms and mechanical parts for Savoia Marchetti airplanes. After the war, thanks to an enormous demand for brass ladles for the U.S. army, the Alessis expanded the company and started mass production. Carlo's brother Ettore, who joined the company in 1945, was the first to bring outside designers to the company, such as the architects Carlo Mazzeri, Luigi Massoni and Anselmo Vitale. Since that time, the range of products offered by Alessi has expanded to include such items as office accessories and electrical appliances, in collaboration with a growing range of contemporary designers such as Jasper Morrison and Philippe Starck, all the while maintaining Alessi's commitment to design and quality.
