Tradition and manufacturing excellence are intertwined in the timeless creations by Richard Ginori Manufacture, founded in 1735 when the Marquis Carlo Andrea Ginori, inspired by the passion for white gold, started a porcelain factory in Doccia – he actually set up shop in his family estate, a stone’s throw from Florence.

The XVIII century was pivotal for the development of porcelain all over Europe: the first manufacturing companies were born fueled by new taste and international trends.
The manufacturing technique from Doccia synthesizes the elements of ancient tradition with more modern influences, having already become the international landmark for porcelain production.
In that same historical period, the “a stoia” motif (“woven fabric”) was created and subsequently introduced in many wondrous collections featuring luxurious gold decorations.

In 1806, the company management was passed to Leopoldo Carlo Ginori Lisci, who undertook a thorough renovation process. During the XIX century, this business expanded and the Richard Ginori Ceramic Company was born. From 1923 to 1933 the artistic direction was entrusted to the great Gio Ponti, who introduced highly innovative elements with sensitivity and respect for the taste for the old, and for oriental culture. In 1925, at the Universal Exhibition in Paris, this company and its artistic director were both awarded a Grand Prix.

During the twentieth century, this company continued to renew itself, relying on the experience of the greatest Italian designers of that time like Franco Albini, Franca Helg, Antonio Piva, Sergio Asti, Achille Castiglioni, Gabriele Devecchi, Candido Fior, Gianfranco Frattini, Angelo Mangiarotti, Enzo Mari, and Aldo Rossi.

In 2013, Ginori Manufacture was acquired by Gucci and its artistic direction was entrusted to Alessandro Michele. In 2016, Richard Ginori became part of the Kering Group, while the creative direction was actually entrusted to a team of designers, under the supervision of Alessandro Michele.

Today, Richard Ginori continues to be an expression of true Italian excellence all over the world. Every single product is a synonym of high-quality craftmanship, creativity and state-of-the-art porcelain manufacture.
