Today’s technology was unthinkable fifty years ago.
But technology alone is not enough.
What is needed is a broader vision
Rita Levi Montalcini
GSI has always been one of the leader company in Civita Castellana’s ceramics industry tradition.
Since the 30’s GSI has been using its entrepreneurial spirit to overcome market difficulties.
In this context the founders of the company have cleverly modelled traditional craftsmanship with evolving technical innovations in a Research and Development process based on a work ethic and value system which focuses on the human insight and know-how typical of Italian industry.
In this way there is a productive relationship between investors, management, designers and workers which has led to a virtuous circle enabling us to offer products with a clean designs and high standards of quality, following what has become GSI’s byword, “Italian Made”.
The 90’s are those characterized by a greater push towards innovation in a process of transformation that will bring the company to a total refurbishment obtained with considerable investment and aimed at increasing the human capital and technological-productivity.
Aiming at obtaining tangible results in terms of innovation is the focus of GSI today thanks to a renewed management team that strongly believes in the new development plan. In a historic moment like today, where caution seems the only way forward, GSI ceramics continues its policy of growth building a bridge to an upcoming future that will see the company as a real protagonist and interpreter of good Made in Italy.
The local surroundings are rich in history, the cradle of the ancient Faliscan civilization, over which Monte Soratte looms in solitary majesty.
It is a region that has always fascinated poets, painters and hermits with its countryside that is both harsh and mild at the same time: the deep ravines carved out by running waters, the contrasts between the red tuff and the green of the luxuriant vegetation, the small towns clinging to hilltops have been evoked in verse, painting and spiritual meditations.
This earthy magic, a suggestive charm suspended between yellow, ochre and emerald has remained unchanged and continues to delight visitors to this day.
Wherever a river runs, a civilization rises. Water is a giver of life and humans exploit its impetuous energy.
Water makes it possible to mould the earth and create new forms. This fusion between solid and liquid is a precious alliance between ancestral continuity and ceaseless change.
Blended and dosed with great skill, water and earth coexist harmonically in the forms of manufactures. Here in our countryside ceramics have been produced for millennia: with earth and water sealed by fire.
