Tigella Exhibition

The exhibition is set up in the coat of arms room in the ancient hamlet of Samone di Guiglia. Here time appears frozen in the Renaissance period. In this area tigelle, which are the round terracotta discs used to cook a traditional flatbread called “crescentine”, were produced locally. The museum tour illustrates the production cycle of this local food product and exhibits fragments of tigelle dating back to medieval times as well as other instruments related
to breadmaking. Each family in the area would produce tigelle with their own unique family symbol or with a decorative motif. One of the most popular motifs was the six-leaved rose, called “Rosa Carnacina”, which was believed to bring good luck.
