The Neolithic age radically changed our relationship with food: the use of clay containers has brought to new paradigms in conservation, cooking and transportation. Style and shape were different and distinctive for each group; the triangular motifs engraved on this cup before the firing, for example, were typical in the groups that have lived in the Adige Valley. This find, luckily intact, comes from the Gaban Shelter, a site that for its importance gives the name to this cultural complex.
