In Usmate, in the heart of the green Brianza, a geographical area with a long tradition of porcelain production, knight Franco Perego founded Tiche Porcellane d’Arte in May 1962.
Driven by a passion for porcelain, Franco Perego faced numberless challenges before learning to successfully handle the subtle alchemy that goesinto an artistic creation and its implementation.
On-going contact with sculptors, model makers and painters from historical art workshops, led him to gradually discover all the secrets of porcelain -a precious, mysterious material. He was thus known as the “Porcelain King”.
Making the most of their father’s teachings, today his children Cristiana, Luca and Lamberto enthusiastically carry on the “Porcelain Journey”.
