La Cupola Stovetop Espresso Maker - Magnet
Alessi La Cupola Magnet

We like this as a unique mini gift or stocking stuffer. But we also like it as a way to add some flair (and remind us of Italy!) on our refrigerator.
La cupola is a kitchen accessory designed by Aldo Rossi. It's part of the magnet collection, a small homage to the iconic products in the Alessi catalogue.
Born in Milan (1931-1997), he is considered by many to be the greatest Italian architect of the second half of the 20th century. His life as an architect started with Gardella and Zanuso. An author of abstraction, reduction and brevitas, his severe language of primary shapes, geometrical patterns and silent evocation created some of the most intensely poetic works of architecture and design in his age.
