'''L'Anatra''' pipes, carved by '''Massimo Palazzi''' and '''Andrea Pascucci''', herald from one of the great centers of Italian pipemaking, Pesaro in North Italy. Pesaro is famed for being preeminent in the world of pipe making to such an extent that, given its unique neoclassical styling, pipes made in the neoclassical style are often described as being of the "Pesaro School".

'''Pesaro''' features some of the greatest names in Italian pipe making, including [[Mastro de Paja]], [[Rinaldo]], [[Ser Jacapo]], [[Le Nuvole]] and [[Il Ceppo]]. Along with the area around Cucciago, Italy, this area has been at the forefront of the Italian pipe renaissance and the Pesaro style has permeated the method and style of pipe makers throughout Italy. The pipe makers of Pesaro all but created neoclassical pipe making. Neoclassical pipes are characterized by their loose interpretation of traditional shapes and their focus upon elegant, artistic lines and curves. Indeed, neoclassicism from Pesaro did to Italian pipes what the early Modernist artistic movements did to sculpture and painting.

The influence of the great Pesaro pipe makers is clearly visible in L'Anatra pipes, and yet L'Anatra has a style very much unto its own also. L'Anatra pipes, though certainly elegantly neoclassical, are more playful. It is difficult to articulate this playfulness in the form and composition, but clearly Palazzi and Pascucci have sought to push the boundaries of the neoclassical form. The result is elegant while seeming less formal and urbane. The styling seems as much intended to amuse as to impress. It is rare that an artisan of any variety can make light of his pursuits. One might argue that it is even more rare among pipe makers given the traditionalism that typifies them. Indeed, it is delightful to see pipe carvers of extraordinary ability and talent that are so in love with their craft that they are able to create pieces that display their silly, playful side in addition to their virtuosity as artists.
