The “Cacciapuoti” artistic ceramics manufacture was founded in Naples by Cesare Cacciapuoti, who belonged to a family of majolica makers from Campania.
His son Giuseppe (1828-1896) inherited the company around 1880 when some of his works are exhibited, first in Turin and then in Milan.
His brother Ettore also works in the factory, presenting some of his ceramics at the 1889 Paris Exposition.
In 1906 Ettore leaves the factory and moves to Paris where he embarks on a career as a painter and Guglielmo takes over all the shares of the factory and the production continues under the name of “Stabilimento Ceramico Artistico Partenopeo”.
In 1907 the sons of Guglielmo, Mario and Guido moved to Treviso where they collaborated with the ceramic manufacturer “Gregory” and where they met Arturo Martini.
In 1927 Mario and Guido, in partnership with Angelo Bignami who deals with the commercial and administrative sector, left Treviso and founded in Milan, in viale Premuda 34, the artistic ceramics factory “Mario Cacciapuoti & C.” which remained active until 1930.
In 1930 Mario died prematurely and the management of the company remained in the hands of Guido who started the manufacturing on the road to success, realizing a production of high quality and quantity, both of models and pieces.
The company’s production, which consists of traditional and modern ceramics, statuettes and figurines in eighteenth-century costumes, is extremely well-finished from a technical point of view and receives important awards at major Italian and foreign exhibitions.
