minotticucine was founded in 1949 by Adriano Minotti. His son Alberto took over the company in the 1990's. He introduced his philosophy of 'mediterranean essentialism', drawing inspiration from the natural stone quarries in the local area. This led to a period of design innovation - The first company to have furniture systems to hide functional items in a kitchen. The first to use 60mm thick stone slab worktops with a natural broken edge, and the first to manufacture solid stone kitchens. minotticucine has transcended the boundaries of kitchen design and become a leading supplier of luxury kitchens worldwide. Alberto remains the creative force behind the brand today.
