Basic forms with a vaguely ethnic image go into the design of this bottle for the premium olive oil produced at Portofino, in Liguria. Made by hand by the craftsman Tullio Mazzotti of Albissola, the bottle has coloring that is the direct result of a process of dipping in vats of enamel for the various hues, generating colorful stripes.
