Container 16 is a concept store in the center of Rome, but it is much more than that. It’s a wonderland for anyone who loves objects, utensils, and books that have to do with good food and ne dining. The shop, part of legendary restaurant Gusto in Piazza Augusto Imperatore for many years, is now in a new location just a few steps from Piazza Navona
and the Pantheon. The bright, welcoming space is characterized by a combination of vintage furniture and industrial structures. Beside articles by renowned Italian kitchen brands, you’ll nd unusual objects from all over the world. Among the cast iron pans and copper pots, woks and tajines, mugs, teapots, kettles, and toasters, you’ll also discover hanging lamps, clocks, vintage pieces, design objects, ceramics, and porcelain. Everything to set a perfect table and a vast selection of wine accessories are also available. Owner Marco Leter has curated a collection of international cookbooks over the past 10 years, and his colleague Marina Pinzuti, architect and set designer, brings an artistic eye to the selection of items to decorate the table and home.
