In 1886 Ferdinando Rossi founded a pipe factory in Barasso, Lombardy. Over the time production came to leading positions: between two world wars Rossi’s factory was recognized as the largest in the world, 860 people worked there (95% of them – women), 50 000 pipes a day (it’s not a typo! yes, 50 000 a day!).

But until the centenary anniversary the company faced notable decline in demand for pipes, Rossi’s family left the business.  A new brand was started on the basis of production capacities and skilled people. Thus today Molina pleases smokers with its products: from refined handmade artisans pipes to reliable and affordable devices for every day.
