TOGNANA ORIGIN / HISTORY
It all began in 1775, when the Tognana family was active in the brick industry. In those years, in the Treviso area, the artistic production of ceramics and porcelain of high quality was very active, and next to Tognana there was another company destined to a prominent role in Tognana’s history: Andrea Fontebasso. It is thanks to companies like this that the ancient Treviso ceramics slowly acquired the international prestige they enjoy today. To date, Andrea Fontebasso 1760 is one of the company’s leading brands.
Tognana headquarters are in Casier, in the province of Treviso. The proximity to the city that for centuries has been a cultural point of reference, Venice, has contributed decisively to the development of a brand that has never overshadowed the aesthetic component of its offer. Even today, in fact, Tognana is a company that can boast its origins as an artistic laboratory, transmitting passion and emotion within an industrial reality.
1946 was the year in which the company changed into what we know today, going from painted pottery to porcelain, and it quickly became a prestigious representation of the best Italian manufacture. At this moment, porcelain is made with traditional systems of firing, sintering, and vitrification; in 1966, just twenty years after its foundation, the ‘Sebring’ plant was founded, the current Tognana Porcellane. In 1985, collaborations began with internationally renowned designers such as Mila Schön and Matteo Thun. But the turning point was in 2000 with the acquisition by the Morosi Group, which determines the transition from manufacturing company to successful international business. The strength and growth of the brand soon allowed Tognana to extend the company’s know-how into new categories. In 2009 the first pots in cast aluminium were made, and in 2012 the Tognana coffee percolators were launched with a range that represents a classic design renewed in a modern and functional way.
The combination of manufacturing art, design, and technology is Tognana’s winning recipe. The company extends over 65,000 square meters and hosts, in addition to the executive, sales, research and development centres, also the production plant, the logistics infrastructure, and a large warehouse of over 35,000 square meters.
