THERE IS NO INNOVATION WITHOUT PASSION, HOPE AND DETERMINATION.
THIS IS WHAT IT TAKES TO BRING AN IDEA TO REALITY.

"Everything begun with a challange launched by my grandchildren.

During Autum's evenings, occasionally, we like to dine with chesnuts, sipping a good red wine and having a chat while cutting the side of the fruits before cooking them on the fire.

Since my lifelong experience in mechanics, I was asked why there was no contraption to perform such a procedure.

Well, it was an instant desire to try and give shape to what has become La Roncoletta del Doge."






A JEWEL OF ITALIAN CRAFTMANSHIP

La Roncoletta del Doge, concieved as a chesnuts cutter, is infact a manufacturing jewel beyond mechanics.

In 2013, it earned the patent certification by the Italian Patent and Trademark Office A sophisticated design and precious materials, such as bronze, brass and special alloys, compose a balanced system of gears, levers and weights that allow a smooth and steady rotation.

Inspired by the traditional "roncoletta", an old farmers' knife, the small sharp blade cuts the chestnut exactly in the center of its circumference, regardless of shape and size.
This allows a more even cooking and easier peeling.
