Fattobene, an archive of timeless Italian objects

-
Emanuele D'Angelo

Fattobene is an archive of Italian objects that have existed for generations. It is a journey through the objects that have marked history with their design and unique forms that have remained imprinted in all our minds. Fattobene collects and sells timeless objects that endure over time, objects that are impossible to forget like Fabbri jars or the famous packaging of Leone candies.

To find them, they traveled from north to south in search of traditional archetypes that time has not worn away and that today are part of our collective imagination.

The result is an ever-evolving collection, featuring Art Deco soaps and popular fabrics, tavern pitchers, and drinks with ancient names like Rosolio or Ratafià. Many of these items are true treasures, impossible to find outside their region of origin, but since 2015, founders Anna and Alex have joined forces to create a place where readers can discover these often forgotten stories.

Here, we have made our own selection of the most iconic objects that have taken us back in time, unlocking our memories.
