The so-called "Sacro Catino" is a hexagonal vessel made of green glass; according to the chronicles, it was brought to Genoa by Guglielmo Embriaco in 1101, upon his return from the first Crusade and the conquest of Caesarea.
Legend has it that the plate was used by Jesus to eat the Easter lamb served at the Last Supper and that it is made of emerald.
Going much deep into the legend, it is said that this holly vase was made from the Lucifer’s emerald crown when he was banished from Heaven.
The Sacro Catino is currently held in the Museo del Tesoro of the Cathedral of San Lorenzo.
