Seen in a rather odd kind of store: mid- to high-end cookware - for tourists. In the historical centre of Rome. I've been very disappointed to discover that, in fact, these very fancy looking Bialettis aren't available in Canada or the U.S. I use a Bialetti clone for making coffee almost daily - they're intended for making espresso, but they also make superb coffee. Had I known I couldn't get these at home I might have bought one (you can get them here without the colours), just for the pure absurdity of using a bright orange coffee maker.
