About the Producer
For almost 30 years, Marco Galavotti, has been crafting artisanal tools for the kitchen in his workshop in Modena Italy. He works under the pseudo name, Al Marangoun, meaning “carpenter” or “ax man” in Modenese dialect. And indeed, the tools he creates, mostly made of wood, are reminiscent of a carpenter’s work. Every week, he sells his tools at various markets in small towns scattered throughout Emilia-Romagna.
