Situated in the northern hills of Italy near the Adriatic Sea, Stamperia Bertozzi has been crafting exceptional ceramics and tableware for over three-generations.
The perfect fall morning starts with the perfect cup of coffee – cortado, cappuccino, strong espresso with just the right amount of crema along the top.
Add crusty Italian bread, French butter, a lump of brown sugar and the day melts into something even more tantalizing.
The backdrop for this aromatic spread? None other than the organic, glossy porcelain of Stamperia Bertozzi.
A three-generation Italian family business, Bertozzi has specialized in “stampe a mano” block-printed linens and hand-painted dishware since 1920.
Their colors are distilled organically using special vegetable dyes – a secret recipe passed down through their family.
Of particular note is their use of porcelain – a pure white clay imported from the Limoges region of France.
Antithetical to the traditional, paper-thin treatment of this delicate material, Bertozzi generously shapes their porcelain pieces with thick walls and handles.
The end result is dishware with a sophisticated, but playful country feel that is both durable and contemporary.
