Design globes & bar globes - craftsmanship "Made in Italy".
Italy 1949, in the centre of Rimini the young Italo Zoffoli works with wood. In his workshop he creates beautifully shaped turned feet for beds.
His passion for geography and cartography gives him the idea to build globes.
Nuns from Rimini and his daughters decorate and embellish them with watercolours.
It was also Italo Zoffoli who invented the first bar globe. For this idea, he received the coveted prize "Il tornio d'oro" -the golden lathe, awarded by the Milan Museum of Science and Technology in 1963.
The Zoffoli brand was born. Knowledge, techniques, skill and attention to detail are passed down from generation to generation, creating distinctive and unique globes from high-quality materials.
