Two minds, one ambition, one desire. The will to create, transform and interpret. A shared passion: for glass. This is how the ideas studio was born. It was 1955. Pierangelo Gallotti and Luigi Radice established an artistic space dedicated to glass decoration. Tradition and innovation came together to enable small-scale yet precious production. The first pieces included lighting appliances, furnishing items, mirrors. They were all one-off pieces. They were all made exclusively by hand.
The two associates became aware that they could not stop at artistic production and decoration only and felt the need and wished to expand the collection. They therefore enrolled at the School of Industrial Art at the Sforza Castle in Milan. Here, they took design and decoration courses, grasping every aspect of technical and ornamental design in detail. A unique project, a novel challenge was born: Gallotti&Radice was born.
Gallotti&Radice is a family-run company. The founding members have always managed the company with passion, commitment and dedication and even succeeded in transmitting these values to the new generation, which are still going strong at present with Silvia and Massimo Gallotti, Marco and Pierangelo Radice.
