After WWII, Master ceramist Aldo Londi (1911-2003) became Italian ceramics manufacturer Bitossi Cermaiche’s  Creative Director. He would hold this position for more than 50 years and would design over 1,000 objects. Londi employed his high-level technical expertise and vast experience in traditional artisanal methods to create distinctively expressive and whimsical forms, patterns, and finishes. Londi’s best-known collection is the 1950s-era Rimini Blu (1955-1965), a now-iconic midcentury modern series encompassing over 150 designs, all glazed in vibrant blue and embossed with abstract motifs and shapes.
