Tradition, authentic cooking and design were the inspiration to create this collection, dedicated to the designer’s grandmother, Angelica.
Terra.Cotto comes from the desire to revive the tradition and the old flavours and colours that only terracotta can add to your cooking experience. This has led to contemporary shapes based on yesterday’s cooking.
This cookware promotes gradual heat diffusion, which enhances the organoleptic properties and flavours of food even with little seasoning.

In 1856, Giuseppe Sambonet, the son of a nobleman from Vercelli and a Fine Arts graduate, obtained the patent of Master Goldsmith and set up the company Giuseppe Sambonet, depositing the punch with the initials 'GS' at the Turin mint. At the beginning of the 20th century, the company he founded was official supplier to many noble families, including the Duchess of Genoa and the Count of Turin.
In 1932 Sambonet, the first in Italy, set up an industrial-scale production plant capable of both solid and galvanic silverware production. In 1938, it developed an innovative process for the production of stainless steel cutlery, fine-tuning the technique for silverplating. In 1947 it started the production of stainless steel knives and blades with his own technology.
Made with distinguished artisan care, quality of materials, latest generation production techniques and secrets passed down from the company’s silversmith tradition, today Sambonet’s collections represent the perfect combination of Italian excellence, craftsmanship and good taste.
