Testa di Moro is a characteristic object of the Sicilian tradition. It is a hand- painted ceramic vase, used as an ornament, which features the face of a Moro or a beautiful young woman. Legend has it that around year 1000 in the ancient
Arab quarter of Palermo, Kalsa, a young girl seduced and abandoned by a Moro found revenge by cutting off his head and planting some basil in it. This is how the Mori chopping boards are born.
