My kitchen "theme" is Italian and hubby built this shelf for me which I painted & gold leafed. Everything on it came from Italy and our trip back in 2007. The photo is of my 4th cousin, Maria DiGilllanardo who lives in our ancestral home of Cansano. She's a child then wearing the dress that represents the city. (This something all small villages have done for centuries apparently) The dress is done only on special occasions or feasts such as St Anthony's Day.
