Three centuries of history

In 1660 Angiolo Ricceri arrived in Impruneta and right in the locality of Marsiliana, on the land where the clay (galestro) was – and still is – the most intact and purest, he founded the company whose name sabrèbe has become famous all over the world.
From the Antica Manifattura Ricceri d’Impruneta first hand-made bricks, terracotta tiles, roof tiles and, soon, the splendid ornamental terracottas for gardens and the inimitable jars, superb dexterity of the jar makers of the 1600s.
The production of terracotta sculptures reached its peak around the middle of the 19th century.
In 1940, after having conquered the world markets – thanks to all the splendid majolica – the manufacturing industry transformed the current company thanks to the entry of the Brunori family.
In those years, the precious gipsoteca will host over 3000 plaster models and molds that can still be reproduced today.
The company then opens up to the production of fine bricks and refined terracotta floors.
The exclusivity of the clay ensures the highest degree of hardness and the lowest water absorption for the entire production, while offering great resistance to frost and extremely easy maintenance at the same time.
