Fratelli Rossetti

Founded 1953 in Italy
Based in Milano

The history of Fratelli Rossetti, founded in 1953, is not just the history of a company, but of a family in its own right.

Following the end of the Second World War, Renzo Rossetti embarked on an adventure, almost by chance, which would end up becoming a worldwide brand and a symbol of Italian-made quality. Without any certainties, working day and night in a tiny workshop, Renzo possessed the recklessness of those who want to do things on a big scale without looking too far into the future.

Little by little the family grew to encompass all the skilled craftsmen and co-workers whose skills and talent helped make the company great. Renzo's children would chase one another up and down the warehouse corridors; right from a very early age, those large rooms and workshops were like a second home to them.
