Born in La Spezia in 1954, Stefano as an architect and designer was taught by Buti at Florence University. In the early 80Æs he founded the King-Kong Production Group along with Guido Venturini. His explosive talent enables him to embody a complex system of 'affective codes' in his projects. This great approach won him the title of 'Super and Popular' designer in the 90Æs. A technical designer par excellence, he has industrial design in his DNA and the capacity to understand public sentiment like no other designer. His projects began with the "Girotondo" (1989 designed with Guido Venturini) and the first transparent objects in plastic from the "Family Follows Fiction" series (1993). There is a huge number of his items in the "Officina Alessi", "Alessi" and "A di Alessi" catalogues.

Alessi Piripicchio Clothes Shaver by Stefano Giovannoni, 2005
korlin77 from LV
This is a fabric shaver that is attractive, but very basic. It doesn't work any better than the $10 ones I've used in the past, and the lint cover doesn't stay on. I am very dissapointed in the workmanship and poor performance.

Bought two and they work really well. Easy to use. Defuzzed a really bad sweater easily. Great design and look.
Great for De-Fuzzing Sweaters!

I bought this in the fall when I started shifting to wintery clothes and sweaters, and found that many of my sweaters were so pill-covered that they were unwearable. I'm glad I didn't just give them away! This little guy works like magic, and it's cute too. I've tried shaving sweaters before, but the great thing about this sweater shaver is that it's much less effort and the lint is collected in the shaver. It's easy to dump the captured lint when the container is full. I've already recommended this to all of my friends.
