Founded in 1947 by brothers Giovanni and Ersilio, Fantini is still a family business today. It is located in Pella, on the shores of Lake Orta, a small and romantic lake nestling in the mountains of Piedmont, in the north-west of Italy, where metalworking has a long tradition and where over time districts manufacturing taps and household goods have been established. Water is the common thread that permeates everything the company does, and the lake is a constant presence, so much so that it represents Fantini’s true ‘Genius Loci’.
“Our history and our daily life are made of water and the lake. My family and our company have always been closely linked to the life of Lake Orta. water is our common thread, a constant and indispensable visual presence, which influences our thoughts and our projects. The peaceful and serene atmosphere of our lake and the mystical aura that surrounds it, with the discreet presence of the convent of cloistered nuns on the island of San Giulio, make this place special for us.”
