A historic presence in the artisanal terracotta business of Impruneta.
Livio, Ottavio e Bruno Masini
In 1934, Ottavio and Livio Masini began working as kilnmen by taking over the old Giuseppe Agresti Kiln in Impruneta.
The following year, their brother Bruno joined them and he alone, in 1939, took over the old Vanni Kiln that dated back to 1681.
Soon Osvaldo flanked his father Bruno.
Osvaldo was only 10 years old when he entered the workshop for the first time. He literally fell in love with his job.
In the mid Seventies, after the death of his father, Osvaldo took over the workshop and, with the help of expert collaborators, like his wife Carla, carried on the activity.
In 1981, Marco, Osvaldo and Carla’s son, started working in the workshop at 22 years old.
In a short time Masini Terracotta was demanded worlwide. Marco’s leadership, Osvaldo’s experience and thei expert collaborators made it possible.
First in Europe, especially Germany, France, UK and Belgium, then all around the world, from US to Japan, from Australia to UAE.
In 2004 Marco went to New York to do a demonstration of working clay at New York Botanical Garden: Masini Terracotta became world-renowned
In 2014 Costanza, the fourth generation, joined the family business, as marketing and sales manager.
In 2019 she became senior associate with her father Marco.
Costanza, since she entered in family business for the first time, has a project that she’s working on hard: introduce her brand to a wider market.
