Smeg History

The history of Smeg has distant origins: since the nineteenth century the Bertazzoni family was an expert in the art of working metals.

Building on long-established family experience and at the same time animated by its own entrepreneurial spirit, in 1948 Vittorio Bertazzoni founded his own company, Smeg: Smalterie Metallurgiche Emiliane Guastalla. At the time the industry made great use of enamelled materials and at the outset, the company took care of the enamelling of metals.
