Hidden away down a drab side street in Milan's gray suburbs, the little figures lined up in the dusty window of a local ceramic workshop add a welcome dash of a color on a chilly autumn day.For nine years, since conceiving the idea as part of a project, ceramic artist Stefano Puzzo has been producing beautifully-crafted replicas of the tiny plastic Subbuteo characters that have been flicked around, and trodden on, in households across the world since the mid 1940s.The list of customers is impressive, but one is a particular favorite for Puzzo.While Stefano works with leading designers and architects to produce a range of one-off artworks, the Subbuteo pieces are his pride and joy – each character lovingly created by hand over a four-day process.Stefano, a lifelong Milan fan, might not be getting too many requests for the current Azzuri squad though, after their failure to qualify for the World Cup.
