The Ceramiche Rometti maison (house) has been active in Umbertide, Italy since 1927. Rometti was one of the first in Italy, in the early thirties, to move away from the traditional figurative neo-Renaissance and late Italian Liberty style to pursue the innovative ideas of avant-garde art and international design. Founders Settimio and Aspromonte Rometti guided the venture to successfully implement some of the finest components of contemporary design, creating products that combined research and creativity.

Today, constant experimentation is a hallmark of the Rometti workshops, in which complex and sophisticated production techniques are adapted to the specific characteristics of their earthenware, stoneware or porcelain products. As regards to majolica, for example, Rometti has always used an age old method: objects shaped by hand on the wheel are painted and “frescoed” before being baked ; a special plaster bringing out the colours and giving depth to the decorations. A mixture of the purest raw materials is used to create extremely fine porcelain. Natural clay is taken from a local quarry, whose origins date back to Roman times. The various production phases in the workshops require highly specialized manual operations such as moulding, shaping, casting, enamelling by immersion or spray, and painting. These high quality products are exclusively hand-made and are never exactly alike.

During its early conception Rometti attracted the talents of futurist artists such as Fortunato Depero, and Giacomo Balla. Also works of stylized figuration, sometimes visionary, playful and bizarre were created by artists of the caliber of Corrado Cagli and Dante Baldelli. Other prestigious collaborators that contributed to Rometti were painter and sculptor Giovanni Ciangottini and Leoncillo Leonardi in the forties. Today , Rometti has a team of contemporary designers that collaborate with the company including Monica Poggia, Liliane Lijn, Ambrogio Pozzi, Chantel Thomas and Jean Christoph Clair.
Rometti has been in continual production now for 90 years and has imbibed a diversity of ceramic influences including the genres of Art Deco, Futurism, Bauhaus and Modernist, all infused with the unique and distinctive Rometti interpretation. Its contemporary creations continue their rich tradition of innovation and visionary flair.
