FIRST!!!

And thanks Nathan. For this wondering , we chose the colour scheme to best represent some of the colours you might see with famous ceramic plates from the region. We decided to reverse the alpha/mod colours, to reflect how a plate is generally porcelain around the edges and the detail work is in the centre. Please enjoy!

As someone who was married on the amalfi coast, this is super duper!

any chance of an optional lemon accent kit ("limoncello"!)- i'd personally love to see the lemon r1 key in a blush yellow, as the icon is so great but imo deserves to reflect more fully such an enduring symbol of the region (the lemon).

also, not a fan of the "mamma mia" accent - as that show (bizarrely) was based in greece (despite being an italian expression), not the amalfi?

the red on the different renders looks a bit different despite the same lightning use - one looks quite nice and blush red, the other looks like a more saturated version - not sure if intentional.

OTTIMO (Great) set. I would make only a little correction, the plural of keyboard is "Tastiere" (no tastieras). Anyway, thanks for paying homage to one of the most beautiful coasts of our country.

Beautiful set, just some little observations:
- Tastiere (as Andrea already said)
- Fornitori also is weird, Venditori/Negozi is a better translation
- Riconoscimenti isn't wrong, but it is more common to see in this context Ringraziamenti
- Not a fan of the "Mamma mia" novelty too, probably I will prefer another phrase
- If you are adding a north kit it will be nice to have a south kit too (thematically it fits more too)

Hyped for this set. It was a real missing piece in the cultural landscape of sets and I can't wait for it. Echo the call for Sorrento Lemon yellow novelties, would give it a wonderful gelato quality colorwise. And I could think of a few other choice expletives that could replace "Mamma mia!" Overall, can't wait to cop. Nice work Nathan!

We are exploring replacing this yet. It was the most PG thing we could think of when deciding on the backspace. "Cazzo" has always been the front-runner, but I don't know how people would feel about this.

As a Venetian a "cazzo" novelty would be the best thing ever (but 1u so that I can replace the comma xD), but Campania isn't really known as the swearer region like us or Tuscany so thematically it wouldn't really fit IMO.
If you want to be PG safe what do you think of "La Dolce Vita" (or just "Dolce Vita" if it is too long)? It would be both a reference to the Fellini film but it is also commonly used to describe the "common" Italian lifestyle of enjoying good weather, good food, good wine and good places, while the cinematographic reference wouldn't be 100% correct (La Dolce Vita was mainly produced in Rome and obviously depicts Rome) the lifestyle one would be a good fit IMO.

Great comments and do tend to agree with most points - But I think the point of Mamma Mia was, n riff on the 'Backspace' key so it has to have reference to this.
Perhaps "Sbagliato" (Fixed typo, was late!) is a good compromise?

You mean "Sbagliato"? Yes as a backspace novelty it can work, other options can be "Maledizione" (or "Dannazione" but it isn't as common) that can be used as an exclamation when you do an error (think of "damn it").
