The identity of Bitossi Ceramic developed from the beginning of 1900’s from a productive ceramic tradition that existed in Montelupo Fiorentino from 1500. The activity of the Bitossi family started in 1921 by the initiative of Guido Bitossi with the establishment of “Manifattura Ceramica Cav. Guido Bitossi & Figli” that combined typical local craft works with a structured productive organisation. The production continued also with the collaboration of leading figures who were able to introduce an innovative cultural artistic sensibility.  More than 7000 original pieces starting from the 50’s, were collected and filed in the “Bitossi Industrial Archive”; 200 selected pieces among those can be seen at MAIB – Artistic Industrial Bitossi Museum, that was built by the company to showcase this historical path. Bitossi Ceramic is still run by the same family and thanks to the historical and cultural heritage that was recovered in these last years, it kept alive its original craft roots, combined with a constant innovation.
