|"Cornucopia" literally horn of plenty (from the Latin "cornu" meaning horn and "copia" meaning "abudance" or "plenty") is a mytholoigcal symbol of food and abundance.
According to Greek mythology, it is the horn lost by Acheloo, the river god, in a fight with Hercules for the affection of Deianira. The horn was retrieved by the Naiads, the river goddesses, and filled with flowers and fruit, in allusion to the fertility and abundance of the valley which Acheloo nourishes.
The "Cornucopia" of Castello, a limited edition pipes (163 pieces), richly ornamented by an artistic silver molding, is named to connect the richness of flavors and aromas wich flow out of its bowl to the mystical symbol.
