Ferdinando Collini was born in 1943 in Fisto, a small village of the Rendena valley (Trento). When he was 14, he moved to Macerata joining a family friend where he begun working in a cutlery, learning the art of grinding. After few years of apprenticeship he moved again to Tortona where he improved the grinding technique and learnt the tradesman job.

In 1968
Ferdinando Collini arrived in Busto Arsizio with the clear intention of starting his own business. So he took over a small well doing cutlery/ironmongery and realised one of his dreams: having his own cutler's shop.

After a first satisfying period and due to the growing of work, he asked his younger brother Guido to come and join him. In the following years, the firm grew in terms of size and experience, assuring its clientele a professional and qualified service.

In 1996 the two brothers decided to split up the firm in order to better differentiate the two sectors (cutlery and ironmongery) and to get the sons into the business.
Ferdinando and his sons, Rudy and Deborah, who already worked in the shop from several years, held the reins of the cutler's and household articles' shop.

Being present on the internet, the Coltelleria Collini aims today at meeting a wider range of clients, serving them in the best way possible, seriously and professionally
