Bialetti, known for its iconic moka pots, was founded in 1933 by Alfonso Bialetti. He had previously honed his metal-working skills in the French aluminium industry and established his own workshop in Crusinallo, Piedmont, in 1919. The company later faced a crisis but merged with Rondine Italia in 1993 to form Bialetti Industrie S.p.A., based in Brescia.
