At the end of 1800s, the Mussi family were the "strawsmiths .. Pait della paglia", those who worked the straw,and that is where the story begins with Gaetano’s family that goes from being farmers to being manufacturers of wooden furniture for domestic use such as chests and beds.

Following in the footsteps of his father, grandfather Gerunzio decides to open a "workshop" for woodworking, and this work was rewarded in 1924 with the Star of work Merit that King Vittorio Emanuele III bestowed during the International Exhibition of Labor and Industries.Moving on from father to son, the business grows and after the war period specializes in cut and inlayed furniture, in particular with the production of a dining room called “tinello", the first true identity of Italian homes after the war.

In 1948, the kitchen is becoming increasingly important in households pushing Giovanni Mussi to produce his own collection designed himself immediately embracing those "modern" trends which will later become what we now call contemporary design.
