The 50s

Inventiveness and dexterity

In the mid-1950s, Ernesto di Fiore, gifted with particular inventiveness and dexterity with regard to construction in reinforced concrete, invented and began to build his first prefabricated ovens. Built in the workshop under his own home, the first ovens were sold to local families . Compared to the old brick structures, they immediately proved to be easy to assemble, cheap, functional and above all they cooked bread, pizza and an infinite number of foods excellently.
