Minotti was founded by Alberto Minotti in the 1950s. Its original craft dimensions would change soon; by the 1960s it had  already developed into an industrial enterprise. The next step was taken by Renato and Roberto Minotti: between the 1970s and 1980s they made their surname into a nationally and internationally acknowledged brand. Responsible for the company’s strategies, the Minotti brothers shared the creative line, stylistic characteristics and aesthetic  principles with the architect Rodolfo Dordoni, who has been co-ordinating the collections ever since 1997.
