Frantoio Romano Vincenzo’s “PREMIUM” line of Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
One of the most famous “symbols” of Sicily is to provide a handcrafted object combined with one of the Sicilian oils, to leave a memory of this land and an object to keep even after the content is finished. Romano's Teste di Moro is the penultimate symbol of Sicilian craftsmanship and quality.
The legend of the “Moro” (Arabic) head dates back to the 11th century, when the Mori’s invaded Sicily and became part of the population, so much so that it blended perfectly with the Sicilian population. The history of this vase is in the label of the bottle with all the details of the origin of this vase which is found throughout Sicily.
The story of Teste di Moro is heavily featured in HBO TV series, The White Lotus - Season 2.
The bottle is made of heavy glass, on one side the female face, on the other the male face. It is made of dark glass or painted in white.
