The Rimini blu series, signed by master ceramist Aldo Londi, has been produced by the Manifattura Bitossi since 1959. The pieces are decorated with thick signs on the shapes during the production phase. The collection is inspired by the various shades of colours that are fixed under the blue glaze and, after being heated, reproduce the magical reflections of light in the sea.
