The chief players in Caminetto pipes were, Giuseppe "Pepino" Ascorti, Luigi Radice and Enzo Galluzzo. The beginning of this was formed but Carlo Scotti of Castello fame. The pipes were marketed by Gianni Davoli from his tobacco shop in Milan Italy.
When Caminetto broke up Ascorti and Radice started making pipes under their own names and Enzo Galluzzo formed the Capitello Pipe Company in partnership with Corrado Ripamonti.
Capitello pipes were the first oil cured pipes to be made in Italy. This Capitello Corinzio was the first Vergin finish pipe I ever purchased and was so light in color that when it began to color I was simply amazed, a lovely rusticated pipe
What you see for color is from over 30 years of enjoyment of a brand that faded away unfortunately but made first class pipes in the same class as Castello. Keeping it smokey with Mac Baren Virginia Flake.
