W an­ders has cre­ated five ob­jects, de­signed like minia­ture sculp­tures, each with its own per­son­al­ity .“The Jester” cork screw, which goesby the name of Gilberto, is a wine-drunk joker who waves, dance sand man­i­cally ges­tic­u­lates, steal­ing the spotlight as he pulls an­other cork. Next comes “The Strong man” nutcracker, aka Mar cello. From stomp­ing grapes asa child to press­ing olive sand fi­nally crack­ing nuts, his mus­cles have de­vel­oped over the years to make this strong man a great help­ing hand in the home. Then ins pins “The Bal­le­rina” Valentina, a mu­sic box fea­tur­ing a pirou­et­ting baby ele­phant.

Every big top has its clown, and the Alessi cir­cus is home to “The Candy man ”, aka Al­berto, a candy dis­penser. Fi­nally, the fun is over seen by Mas­simo ,“The Ringer leader”, a call bell that lets ev­ery­one know when it’ s time to start the party.
