 The Inquisition tea Pot

A secret Tea Pot was passed from generation to generation as a family heirloom that goes all the way back to the Spanish Inquisition. It quickly becomes evident that the pitcher was not meant to brew or pour tea. Rather, it was a clever way to hide Jewish religious objects which were forbidden in a time, and place, of persecution.

lavender 7

Lavender was commonly used in Roman baths to scent the water, and it was thought to restore the skin. During Roman times, flowers were sold for 100 denarii per pound, which was about the same as a month's wages for a farm laborer, or fifty haircuts from the local barber. Its beautiful rich and soothing color represents the LGBT Community as part of the "Rainbow Flag" and it is used as a symbol for "Gay Pride" all around the world.

Santa Maria 21

Built in 1608, the Staircase of Santa Maria del Monte is a 142-step staircase in Caltagirone, Sicily made from thousands of ceramic tiles, one design per step, as a fitting tribute to a city known for its design and production of ceramics and terra-cotta sculptures. For centuries the stairs have been used as a backdrop for various festivals for which images of patron saints and other local themes are illustrated using thousands of flowers (La Scala Flower) or candles (La Scala Illuminata).
