Smeg was founded by Vittorio Bertazzoni Snr in 1948 when the company specialised in enamelling and metal working. Today, Smeg is run by the third generation of Bertazzoni, but it still keeps the memory of its beginnings alive in its name. SMEG, is an acronym Smalterie Metallurgiche Emiliane Guastalla, which roughly translates as smelting and metal enamelling plant in Emilia, Guastalla, Italy
