Giardinaggio gardening set in green, with box.
The Giardinaggio gardening set by Enzo Mari was produced by Alessi in 1999 and given the designation EM08. It is no longer in production. For a brief biography of Enzo Mari, click here. One of the objects is a spade, the other is a five-pronged rake. Both have small scoopers at the opposite end.
The pair is sometimes referred to as a pasta or salad set, which I guess it could be used for. A hint that those uses are not the original intent is that the previous design in Enzo Mari’s Alessi catalog, EM07 Paletta da giardinaggio, is a gardening trowel. Still, the possible repurposing of the “gardening set” is an interesting prospect!
