Designed in 1938 and presented in silver at the 1940 Triennale, the Caccia series of cutlery - an excellent example of “Lombard classicism” in design - won praise from Gio Ponti for the balance it struck between an image of craftsmanship and the industrial future of household objects. Since 1990, thanks to an agreement with the Castiglioni brothers and with Luigi Caccia Dominioni and after extensive philological research to complete the series with the missing pieces, "Caccia" has been reissued by Alessi in 18/10 stainless steel.
