CHIARUGI MACINA PEPE - Chiarugi is famous for its Italian made Pepper Mill and Salt Mills. Established in 1952 by Mario Chiarugi, the Chiarugi pepper mill is made entirely on the premises of Tuscany, Florence, Italy. The design is based on an original mechanism which actually cuts the peppercorns rather than crushing them. Genius and passion are qualities upon which the Chiarugi trademark has always relied; exploiting noble materials and expert design it has succeeded in expressing the passage of time through an object which remains timeless. Made in Italy.
