This is a very old and traditional pattern that
originated during the Renaissance in the hill-top town
of Orvieto – Italy.
Truly one of
Italy's most unique and interesting cities, Orvieto has
a charming medieval character, mainly due to its
celebrated Cathedral, a gem of Gothic architecture that
took more than 100 years to build.
The “Galletto” (Rooster) pattern's main motif is a
crowing rooster that symbolizes good wishes for
blessings, prosperity and well-being.
