History

Since 1657 the Remondini printing house in Bassano

Bassano became famous all over the world between 1657 and 1861 due to the impressive publishing work of the Remondini firm. In the eighteenth century it had 18 moveable type presses, 24 chalcographic presses and employed more than 1000 workers. The typical products were prayer books, popular prints, wallpapers and book binding papers. They were distributed by itinerant salesmen throughout Europe, in Russia and even America.

The fall of the Venetian republic marked the decline of the Remondinis and in 1861, after 200 years of prodigious activity, the production lines were separated and sold off to various manufacturers. The dies for the decorative papers went from Bassano to Varese, giving rise to Varese paper.

Thanks to the collaboration with the city's Museo Civico, custodian of important collections of Remondini's production, Tassotti initially reproduced old popular prints and decorative wallpaper - taking his cue from original Remondini polychrome woodcuts - and then completed the catalogue with art prints, greeting cards, diaries, books, stationery, DIY and origami.

The paper for a more sustainable future

Since 1957 in Bassano del Grappa, Grafiche Tassotti heir to the ancient Remondini printing house

To become a "creative print workshop", where expert hands create refined and exclusive products. To be the focal point of a wise artisan tradition, able to restore an ancient history, looking to the future under the sign of innovation.

This has been the mission of the Tassotti family for over 60 years. Since 1957, the year Giorgio Tassotti began working as a graphic printer in Bassano del Grappa in the Veneto region, the family has taken over the heritage of the old Remondini printing house, becoming its full-fledged successor.

A true ambassador of "Made in Italy", the company is an international reference point in the decorative paper sector.

Thanks to the collaboration with the city's Museo Civico, custodian of important collections of Remondini's production, Tassotti initially reproduced old popular prints and decorative wallpaper - taking his cue from original Remondini polychrome woodcuts - and then completed the catalogue with art prints, greeting cards, diaries, books, stationery, DIY and origami.

The Remondini-Tassotti Collection

In Bassano del Grappa, at our "Carteria Tassotti" store, a stone's throw from the Alpini bridge, the Remondini-Tassotti collection is exhibited, with 18th century originals. 

The Remondini Tassotti Collection is part of the Italian Association of Print and Paper Museums.

Since 2007, the prestigious Civic Museum dedicated to the ancient Remondini printing house can be visited in the nearby Palazzo Sturm.
