Farfalli Srl Cavatappi d'Autore is located in Maniago, Italy, a town which is famous worldwide for its production of cutlery and long history.
In June of 1950, Farfalli was founded by Marino Farfalli, who had previously worked for a large cutlery manufacturer. Their production began with the manufacturing of tourist souvenir pocket knives that had pictures of the most important Italian cities were printed on the handles, as tourism was becoming popular in Italy after WWII. Within a few years, Farfalli’s market expanded from Italy to other countries around the world. Production was diversified and other promotional articles began to be manufactured, including pocket and waiter's corkscrews. The request for these goods grew and by the 1970s, corkscrew manufacturing became the main line of the company. Farfalli began specializing in this field by studying innovative solutions and new models. They currently produce a wide selection of corkscrews which range from simple to complex, utilizing a selection of handle materials from stainless, titanium, aluminum to exotic wood. The company was later managed by Marino's sons Giovanni, Mario, Germano and Armando. Since 2000, Farfalli is has been managed by Marino's nephew Daniele.
Farfalli’s goal has always been to provide a quality and useful product. This is achieved by always constant monitoring of the production process, from the purchase and selection of raw materials to the design of the dies, to the assembly system and to the finish of the corkscrew, in order to always guarantee the quality of the final product. Their vast range of corkscrews will not only satisfy the occasional wine drinker, but the restaurant waiter and professional sommelier.
