Valle D’Aosta

Valle d’Aosta is a place where Italian history and border cross with France, and it can be seen from the bilingualism and the autonomous status of the region. The moment of coffee is a moment of sharing, joy and community, and the Valdostans have found their own way to make this concept concrete: through the “Coppa dell’amicizia” (Cup of friendship). It is nothing more than a wooden bowl closed with several spouts. You share it with your friends, family… and tradition wants you to pass this cup from hand to hand, placing it on the table only when you’ve finished.
