The CanaTower is a miniature reconstruction of the conversano tower, the Aragonese castle was built by the Normans around 1054 for the purely purpose of a defensive fortress. From the fifteenth century the county of Conversano was ruled by the Acquaviva family who transformed the ancient fortress into a princely residence and consolidated some defensive elements. And in this period Giulio Antonio Acquaviva had the cylindrical tower built, which has now become the symbol of Conversano.
The CanaTower apparently a simple souvenir hides many other various functions.
First of all it can be used as an artistic pen holder as much as the artists who will benefit from it;
can also be used as an ashtray;
as a one-of-a-kind piece, to be placed inside nativity scenes;
like a container flanked by the "terrazzo" cap;
or still it can host life, yes just like that being manufactured in hemp plastic, a porous, breathable, biodegradable and sustainable material at 360 °, it allows you to grow certified hemp seeds or other plants inside.
Each single piece is 3D printed and hand finished, making it a one-of-a-kind object. Any small imperfections demonstrate the true craftsmanship of the product and the uniqueness of each single piece.
