I suppose if someone put a gun to my head (or at least threatened me with loss of caffeine privileges) and forced me to pick an overall aspect of Italian pipe making that I wasn't too fond of, it might be the general neglect of cross cut and birdseye as a top-tier grain pattern. There is, thankfully, an Italian carving house that has known, since its inception, what the Danes have also known for decades; cross cut grain and birdseye, properly presented can be devastatingly beautiful. From 1947, until 1980, this stunning pipe would have been called simply "Collection". In 1980 it was decided to differentiate the Collection pipes that sported exemplary birdseye with the "Collection Occhio di Pernice" stamp. Here we have that rarefied grade and Castello's least executed shapes. By any chance, does anyone have a defibrillator handy?
