Reference: Fornasetti: The Complete Universe, Barnaba Fornasetti, Page 618, #175, where the author writes about the Specialita regionali italiane series, "The project, a truly large undertaking, involved presenting culinary specialties most representative of certain regions or cities in Italy, with each plate, bordered in gold, depicting a monument, a recipe, and a container in which the dish was traditionally served.  Fornasetti's idea of combining art and popular tradition was awarded with notable commercial success".
