For over two centuries we have been a fixture for all travellers who seek the quality of Made in Italy.
In Florence since 1815”
Gazzarrini’s history started long time ago: at its foundation, in 1815, it was a shop of artisans who made travel goods such as bags and chests for chariots in the heart of Florence, in via Porta Rossa, which was, at that time, the symbol of all artisan trading in Tuscany. During the 19th century, the travel goods store in via Porta Rossa became a reference for all travellers and businessmen who used to stay in town both for short and long periods of time. Local economy grew even more when Florence became the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, welcoming visitors from all around the country.
A few years later, the artisan Giuseppe Gazzarrini started to work in that very store in via Porta Rossa. By the end of the century, the store is not only a point of reference for all travellers, but also a renowned trademark because of their high quality goods.
In 1906, Giuseppe Gazzarrini, who became the shop leader, bought the store and changed its name. Thanks to him, the company extended the production of chests to luggage bags, perfectly interpreting the epoch-making invention of the car and the consequences on the travelling habits of all Italians.
Later on, Gazzarrini launched new models and started using more and more refined materials, becoming and Italian excellence in the sector, receiving recognition in Italy and Europe. Even when the flood of 1966 struck the whole city, the Gazzarrini family quickly came back on their feet and went back in business. In 2011, the year when the last member of the Gazzarrini family sold the company, four generations of Gazzarrinis managed the store in via Porta Rossa.
From 2011 on, under the new management, Gazzarrini is going through a phase of modernisation of our selection, proposing new brands and models in line with the most recent trends on materials and design. Quality and passion are still the same as always, and even nowadays, Gazzarrini is the choice of travellers who love high quality travel goods and an impeccable service. In the meantime, we opened two new stores: one more in Florence and another one in Rome.
Gazzarrini was present in the most important historic moments of our country as a reference for all travellers who crossed Italy along the years and for those who came from far abroad. The element that made Gazzarrini such an important brand in its over two hundred years in the business is undoubtedly the range of services offered.
Nowadays, Gazzarrini is notorious for the quality of its products, for the vast choice of brands and the possibility of buying and receiving Gazzarrini luggage and bags everywhere in the world.
Furthermore, Gazzarrini also repairs and customises all models of bags and luggage, thanks to the experience of Italian artisans and the knowledge of this industry and its trends. After you buy or fix your bag, the in-store team will organise the free delivery of the item or the taxi delivery straight to your hotel.
