Minotti was established in 1948 by Alberto Minotti. The artisan-scale workshop grew quickly and, starting in the ‘60s, became more industrialized in character and size. The next phase of development fell to Renato and Roberto Minotti, who, after the premature death of their father in 1991, took over the reins of the business and began a process of growth and expansion into international markets. Renato and Roberto Minotti are responsible for the corporate strategy and share the creative vision with architect Rodolfo Dordoni, who has been appointed Art Director and coordinator of all company’s collections in 1998. The key priciple is innovation in the spirit of continuity. Central to the Minotti identity is the full expression of the “Made in Italy” concept, which today permanently melds tradition and technology. The skills of artisan craftsmen are employed to finish a product created by modern mechanization; the intelligence of the hands balances industrial precision with sensitivity and emotion.
