First Time Ever: Pagliacci Swag

Until now, the only way to get Pagliacci swag was to work for the company. But our new shirt is too hot to keep in-house.

Our 45th Anniversary T-shirt was inspired by our collaboration with Seattle Opera and their August production of Ruggero Leoncavallo’s opera, Pagliacci. Our founder, Dorene Centioli-McTigue, named the company in honor of the classic Italian opera, which features a troupe of traveling clowns. “We just thought, what more buffoonery than to open a pizza place,” Dorene said. 

Ames Bros, Seattle’s coolest graphic designers, created the design. Coby Shultz, one half of the dynamic duo behind Ames Bros, said, “It’s been impossible to work on this and not belly laugh at the thought of ‘Squatch’ being forced to perform while stuffed into an uncomfortable clown suit. He has stage fright and is really doing his best up there on the big stage.”
