Tassotti: The culture and art of printing.
In 1957, Giorgio Tassotti opened the Tassotti printing house in Bassano, reviving the tradition of the Remondini printing shop by offering classic hand-coloured prints.
Active in Bassano (then part of the Republic of Venice) from 1657 to 1861, Remondini was considered to be the largest printing house in Europe, with more than 18 moveable type presses, 24 copper plate presses and over 1,000 workers.
The leading products were devotional books, popular prints, wallpapers and bookbinding papers. The products were sold by pedlars who were active throughout Europe, Russia and even the Americas.
The fall of the Republic of Venice marked the printing house’s decline the production lines were divided and sold off to different manufacturers. The plates for decorative papers from Bassano reached as far as Varese, living rise to “Varese paper”.
The Tassotti family has made it a mission to become a “creative print workshop”, with highly-skilled workers capable of producing exclusive, exceptional-quality products, reviving an ancient tradition!
All of the products in the current catalogue (more than 2,000) - ranging from decorative paper, wrapping paper and art prints to Cartascrittura fabric and paper items, greeting cards and fine -numbered editions - are made entirely in Italy at the Bassano facility.
