CESA: in 1882, in Alessandria, began the story of this company, the most prestigious Italian silverware brand.
In 1898, the “Cesa cutlery” was created: it was a top quality handmade product from the beginnings.
Still today, a Cesa 1882 cutlery piece is made via 38 different processing steps to achieve true excellence.

In 1920, at the end of the World War I, Cesa 1882 became the official supplier of the Royal House of Savoy, thanks to the luxury set called “Rubans floreale”.
From 1950 on, the most prestigious banquets held in Rome, at the Quirinale Palace are served with cutlery and silverware made and signed by Cesa 1882.
For over 70 years, many leaders and crowned heads, from Mikhail Gorbachev to Queen Elisabeth II, have been dining at the Quirinale tables, set with the special sets by Cesa 1882.
