Although evidence exists suggesting the Mari Family has been manufacturing majolica in Deruta since the sixteenth century, official records show, among the ancestors of Fratelli Mari, one Giuseppe da Diruta who, in the eighteenth century, had a kiln near the gates of the town called "Il cerro". It wasn't until 1930’s, however, that three brothers and their brother-in-law had the idea to organize the Company properly for the production of traditional ceramics. The F.lli Mari Company was founded in 1932 and began production in the same year.
Over the years, thanks to the initial work of the founders, their successors, and very much also to the work of talented artists of the area, Fratelli Mari have made a name for themselves throughout the world and won recognition at numerous exhibitions and competitions. Today F.lli Mari is one of the most prestigious companies of Deruta and their collection includes a great variety of classical and modern pieces. All hand-made at the Mari Factory in Deruta, the collections consist primarily of traditonal forms and shapes embodying the history of Italian artisanship and timeless beauty.
