Alessi is a family business established in 1921 in Omegna, by the Lake Orta side, in Northern Italy. Started as a workshop for the manufacturing of brass and German silver sheets, in its almost centuries-old history, Alessi has evolved into being recognized as one of the 'Italian Design Factories,' able to apply the abilities it achieved in this field to several product typologies. Alessi, an internationally oriented and change-ready company, has at the same time deep roots into the cultural traditions of its territory, towards which it feels consciously obliged. Still today, in fact, Alessi is a byword for machine-aided handicraft.
