A little Bit about Bitossi
Guildo Bitossi founded the company Manifattura Cavaliere Bitossi e Figlia or in English, Manufacturer Sir Bitossi and Sons in Florence, in 1921. Prior to that, the family had been manufacturing roof tiles for centuries!
But you’re here to find out about that vintage piece with the iconic blue glaze right? Well! It wasn’t until 1959 that Aldo Londi – artistic director of Bitossi for over fifty years – created his most iconic collection ‘Rimini blu’. Which is most well known for it’s blue glaze.
The company itself has existed since the 1500’s, predominantly, until 1921, producing roof tiles.
