Cookware in Italy

VivreManger | Jan 14, 2008 05:18 PM

I am going to be in Italy for about ten days, mostly in Rome, but with a visit to Trent and a shopping transit in Milan.

Is there anything in Rome equivalent to Paris shops like the Bazaar de Hotel de Ville and Dehillerin, where one can find all sorts of distinctive cookware?

At the moment I do not have any particular product in mind, but to here is an idea of what I am looking for. At Dehillerin last summer I bought three different tamis of varying sizes and finess. A tamis is a drum flat sieve that is particularly good for making fine mashed potatoes or ground cheese. It also can double as a collender. At the BHV I found some cute ice trays producing distinctive cubes.

I am looking forward to shopping at Volpetti in Rome and Peck in Milan, but I wonder if there is anything distinctively Italian in cookware, not easily found in NY or Boston.

One other caveat, since before returning to the States I will be flying with a 20 kg. limit within Europe, whatever I get should not be too heavy.

Thanks in advance for your advice.
