cornicelli

Serena makes these little horns which are popular amulets of good luck in Naples and other parts of Southern Italy. They are called “Cornicelli” in Italian and have ancient origins.

“This small workshop was opened by my parents. Now me and my sister continue the tradition. I make the horns here and she sells them downstairs, where we have a store.”

While traveling In Naples, last year, I discovered a fascinating city, full of traditions, where most people have very strong ties with their families.
