Three are the possible direction that I am indicating in this diagram:1st. Considering the new shape of pasta as an evolution of the first two (orecchiette and pizzarieddhi=maritati). This means that the new shape is conceived as a "son", symbol of fertility, fruit and result of the first two.2nd. Design a shape which syntesises the first two, in a more direct idea of sexuality. An embrace, a warm touch.3rd. Try to take the essence of the shape of orecchiette and pizzarieddhi and provide a tool which make it feasible and easier to make them. Such a third direction aims to keep the shape of the original traditional pasta as much as possible. At the moment I am quite critical towards this point and I am investing more on the other two.
This shapes take inspiration from natural and organic elements, the seeds of pomegranate (which are also often represented in art as a symbol for fertility) and of the pepper.

The first serie is called Ovum. Is a rounded shape with small little dots inside representing seeds (fertility). The serie of Openings and spermatozoon relie on the same idea.
