Gavetta (Twine)



string, "mess tin” (1.93 m., Ø 1 mm.) and pin.

Twine, or mess tin, is a type of thin rope. The most used is linen but it can be of cotton, hemp, sisal even if techno-fibers have supplanted natural materials.

The expression “fare gavetta” indicates the period of apprenticeship useful for learning a trade starting from the bottom, too.
