The Rigatti family bought the old Perini Factory at the beginning of the 20th century, a factory which had been building maijolica tiled stoves since 1860.

Monday through Friday from 8 am to 12 pm and from 2 pm to 6 pm

The rest is history – a history replete with lamps, chandeliers and accessories, made of various materials, from wood to iron, culminating in the use of precious fabrics for lampshades. All products are made employing the […]
SlowTile, born in 2018, in Florence, stems from the encounter of the “special artists” of the “Made in Sipario” social cooperative with the Tuscan tradition of hand-glazed terracotta tiles, in collaboration with architect Leone Pecchioli, and expresses, in eight different “creative gestures/decorations,” their particular and unique creativity. A veritable “gymnasium” for training and experimentation, that […]
