The Cassano brand was established in 1926 when Enrico Ceresa, coming back from St Claude (France), modernized his father's (Gerolamo) factory built in 1919 in Cassano Magnago. As soon as 1929 his brother Pietro emigrated to Brazil looking for new markets. The business appreciably developped in the 1930s thanks to an strong export policy (USA, Germany, Denmark, England ...). In 1970, Carlo Ceresa, son of Enrico manages the Fabbrica Pipe di Carlo Ceresa & C.
