Parma, Italy, halfway between Bologna and Milan, has a glorious history that traces back to the Etruscans. Known for its splendid architecture and its food (especially the incomparable parmigiano reggiano cheeses and prosciutto di Parma), it is also a center of art and music, higher learning, and glassmaking, with one of the world’s leading glassware manufacturers, Luigi Bormioli.
From 1946, Mr. Luigi Bormioli led it to international prominence, and the Bormioli family continues his mission: great design, traditional Italian craftsmanship and new-age glassmaking technology. All this to create beautiful glassware of the highest quality. Luigi Bormioli rivals fine crystal in appearance and elegance, but is lead-free, affordably priced and widely available.
