COMPANY DESCRIPTION COTTO CUSIMANO
Spring 1972: the young Andrea Cusimano, native of Palermo, discovers by chance a small clay pit near Catanzaro. The annexed craft kiln was used to manufacture bricks. It is a simple and humble product which, however, catches the imagination of the young man, who is literally fascinated by the activity carried out by those workers and by the beauty of the material.
Over thirty years have by now elapsed since that year. However, the charm of that material has remained unchanged turning into pure passion. The once small light clay pit has attracted the best workers of the Calabrian tradition, revealing its secrets, its strength and its generosity. Andrea Cusimano’s strength and dream have turned into reality.
Today, the Firm Cotto Cusimano invests energies, skills and resources in the ever topical purpose of offering an extraordinary and unique product obtained through an almost handicraft workmanship.
