The history of Alessi
Interesting things about Alessi
- Alberto Alessi's ambitions were often connected with creative, but also with economic frontiers. His so-called concept produced bold products, which were not always crowned with success. When he wanted to have works of art produced in series in the 70s as part of the research project Alessi d`Après, he invited the eccentric Salvador Dalí to design a sculpture for Alessi. But when the engineers despaired of the tricky casting moulds and the project "Mulitpli d'Arte" rather caused head shaking among the people, it was stopped.
- In 1998 the Alessi-Museum was opened, which can be visited by appointment. There are many historical snapshots on display, which give an insight into the history of the dream factory. In addition to 30,000 products and prototypes, there are over 9,000 drawings, 20,000 photographs and many other relevant artifacts from the history of Alessi.
