Platform TV companies: Alessi – Alberto Alessi


The Alessi story started in 1921 in Omegna, when grandfather Giovanni set up the company. There was also a maternal grandfather Bialetti who was immortalized by his son Renato on the side of each coffee-maker as the little man with the moustache created in the 1950s by the Orsini agency. Children and cousins followed suit and father Carlo designed the famous ‘Bombè’ series in 1945, only to give up designing after the war to run the business. Alberto is the third generation of the Alessi family.
