Al Calderaio- Nicola Morelli 1982

Al Calderaio- Nicola Morelli 1982
Era prezioso il mestiere del calderaio (lu cuallaral'): realizzava oggetti indispensabili alla vita quotidiana: la callar', una pentola di varie dimensioni in rame stagnato che serviva per lessare la pasta; la sartasc'n' che serviva per friggere, ecc.
Era cura del calderaio ricoprire internamente i recipienti di rame con uno strato di stagno per evitare che si ossidassero, rendendo tossiche le pietanze (l'operazione si ripeteva ogni qual volta lo stagno si consumava).
Tutti questi oggetti facevano parte del corredo domestico e si appendevano ai chiodi di un telaio rettangolare di tavola appeso alla parete.
Oggi, i vecchi recipienti sono ricercati come pezzi di antiquariato in una società che ripropone un ritorno all'antico e al rustico.
I l'cuallaral' non ci sono più. Matera li ricorda con una bellissima statua di bronzo, opera dello scultore locale Nicola Morelli.

The job of the calderaio (lu cuallaral') was precious: he made objects indispensable to daily life: the callar', a pot of various sizes in tinned copper that was used to boil the pasta; the sartasc'n' that was used for frying, etc..
It was the responsibility of the boilermaker to cover the inside of the copper containers with a layer of tin to prevent them from oxidizing, making the food toxic (the operation was repeated every time the tin was consumed).
All these objects were part of the domestic equipment and hung on the nails of a rectangular table frame hanging on the wall.
Today, the old containers are sought after as antiques in a society that offers a return to the old and rustic.
The l'cuallaral' are no longer there. Matera remembers them with a beautiful bronze statue by the local sculptor Nicola Morelli.

Le chaudronnier.
Je me souviens quand j'étais enfant et de temps en temps, l'un d'eux passait dans la rue, ils étaient presque toujours des gitans. Maintenant, on jette les casseroles et les poêles. merci de ta visite, Roland.

Danke, Udo. Ich erinnere mich wenn es sie noch gab, als ich klein war. Die gingen vorbei im Dorf. Jetzt wirft man alles weg.
