A long history based on the territory
Giacinto Rivadossi, a native of Lumezzane, began a small craft business in Cain in 1920 and in 1922, at the age of 27, he arrived at Agnosine to build his workshop. Along the torrent Bondaglio identifies an old mill for sale, buy it and, using the water that for centuries had turned the heavy millstones, builds the company producing handles. The plant is initially placed along the stream, on a steep ravine under the parish church; then, over time, it extends over the stream and into the rock.
The history of Rivadossi is a bit of the history of the handle , which over time passes from a craftsmanship to a production with more advanced technologies. The continuous evolution of architectural lines in house styles inevitably also involves the handle, like any other piece of furniture. The models of handles and co-ordinates that accompany them, such as knobs, handles, knockers, hinges, switch covers, bolts, hangers, pawls, are combined with the different styles of doors and windows with the warm color of brass, the brilliance of chrome and the delicate effects of the satin finish.
