Tucked away on the quiet and magical Via dell’Oca just a few steps away from Piazza del Popolo in Rome is Artisanal Cornucopia, a treasure of an independent boutique owned and created by Elif Sallorenzo. Created I say because as soon as you enter, you’ve found yourself in the whimsical mind of Elif whose intense passion for design has brought her from Istanbul to London, New York, Paris, Bergamo and now Rome. In this episode, Elif and I talk about her origin story, her design inspirations and the magic of Via dell’Oca and Rome.
“I promise you that every product is here for a reason. Whether it’s the detail or the, craftsmanship or the originality, or the center of the candle or the fragrance, it has just for one reason or another caught me.”
