A little long story

Story

A little bit of history

Albertinari is a family name that since the end of the 1800s has been linked to metallurgy, since the founder Giovanni, put his skills as a blacksmith at the service of nascent railway lines, furnish hardware for the Simplon line and tunnel, on the Sesto Calende bridge, of which he collaborated to produce and riveting the rivets, and later, the last of nine children, Guerrino Remo, as soon as the Second World War ended, he took up the baton together with his wife Afra putting himself to the test with the first automatic lathes in Crusinallo trying to satisfy the needs of the nascent district of houseware in Cusio zone and in particular of the Coffee Maker field, of which it becomes the undisputed reference point for safety valves.
