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.For the A di Alessi catalog a series of little characters was created from the mascot, each of whom possess a household function.

Doesn't handle soft spices
The device is very attractive. Functionally, it seems challenged by any "soft" spices--basil, sage, rosemary, etc. It probably does a very good job with spices that are hard seeds, but for soft spices the device needs a mechanism to force the load into the grinding mechanism.
