Hi Don,
The man from Amarelli was great (I can understand how my writing is difficult to understand….sorry) He was one of the main sponsors of the festival at which I was playing, and we were taken to the head office where he came out to meet me, Lesley, Guido and Gianluca. I told him the story about the tin and he asked me to send him some pictures, so we left laden with licorice including a kilo of powder for friend who has a restaurant and uses it in a pork dish!!!
I looked at their site and it explains how these tiny decorated tins came about because a young boy gave one Mr Amarelli a sketch of some gnomes playing wth a licorice ‘log’ so it all ties in . . neat, huh?

Any thoughts?
