Discover the meaning of pumo pugliese
The new Apulia collection is born from ancient oil mills, from stories of family traditions, with the intense scent of saltiness and the bright colors of a wonderful land. The red of a beloved land, the green of a thousand landscapes and the blue of the crystalline sea are the backdrop for our creations inspired by Puglia .
The emblematic symbol of the Apulian tradition is the LUCKY PUMO. Its term derives from the Latin and means fruit , in honor of the cult of the Goddess POMONA , protector of all fruits. Ancient legends narrate that the pumo , which represents a bud of the Acanthus flower, is a symbol of prosperity and fecundity . Over time it has therefore become an auspicious object, a good luck charm in defense from evil . For this reason it is still made today by Apulian craftsmen in many versions and colors and can be found on the balconies and cornices of the buildings.
