Rossi is a pipe brand that has loomed large for over a hundred years. In fact, Rossi was the largest pipe manufacturer in the world prior to World Was II. The company produces a great product at a reasonable price. Post WWII the business began to lag. Savinelli acquired the rights to the Rossi name in an efter to breathe life into the classic brand and is now making these affordable pipes available to all.
Ferdinando Rossi was a pioneer to briar pipe making in Italy. A close friend with Achille Savinelli regardless of their competition in business. Savinelli has remained a friend indeed being the new caretaker of the iconic Rossi brand.
