The architect Gaetano Rossi carries on his family’s tradition of the bucchero craft started in Gubbio, near Perugia. His father, Antonio Maria, and his uncle, Carlo Alberto, first established the business in the 30s.
The research of new balances and pure shapes have always characterized his production. Not only did his uncle collaborate with Gio Ponti in the 50s, but his father’s works are also displayed in the Museo Nacional de Cerámica in Valencia.
Gaetano’s creations were exhibited in New York during the 500th anniversary of the discovery of America. His pieces still reflect many architects’ and designers’ influences.

My collaboration with the workshop Antonio Rossi began after a journey in Gubbio, the land of ancient Etruscan and rich in Bucchero, a particular local variety of ceramic. Gaetano Rossi, who carries on with passion his father’s tradition started in the early 30s, can be defined as one of the leading experts of manual processing and coal firing of this magnificent material.
