History & Milestones

A history made of stories since 1923.

From professional workshop making nickel-silver and silver-plated brass cutlery to pioneering creator of the revolutionary Bugatti alloy to contemporary kitchenware brand, Bugatti - originally named F.lli Bugatti fu Amadio as a homage to the father of the five brothers who founded it - has never ceased to evolve.

Always nourished by the strong family bond behind it and its deep roots with the territory of Lumezzane (Brescia), the all-Italian company has continued to master innovation in the realms of design, aesthetics and technology, with the goal of infusing its heritage and rich spirit to everyday objects, creating a colourful and surprising lifestyle 
made of stories worth telling and sharing.
