Roberto Ascorti, son of Giuseppe Ascorti better known as "Peppino", approaches the pipe world at the age of 10, back in 1968, when his father began his journey as a manufacturer of handmade pipes in the area of Canturino, that will successively become important in the world of Italian pipes. He attended his studies at the Institute of Art, keeping his passion "pipara", and his work alongside his father.

In 1980, at the age of 22, Roberto choose to completely devote himself to the making of pipes and so, he begins his journey with the name ASCORTI. He achieved his goal thanks to the support and help of his father and his brother Pierangelo, the girlfriend Silvana, and the collaborators of the father in the historical company "Caminetto". The new born Ascorti embodies tradition, experience, competence and the quality Peppino Ascorti has gained over the years, through innovations in modeling and technical solutions, in the spirit of the traditions maintained by the young Roberto.

Over the years Roberto continues to -with love and experience- confront the national and international markets, such as the European, the American, the Japanese and the Chinese, in spite of the differences among these markets and the characteristic of progressive acceleration of change. Roberto knows how to renew himself in style and design, keeping at the same time the importance of his roots and the tradition of pure craftsmanship, therefore, designing each new model or reviewing the old ones by personally checking each workmanship, and working side-by-side with his precious collaborators.

The briars are all personally selected by Roberto, who controls the quality, the size, the weight, and the first seasoning, which is a key step in the area of ​​caving and cut. After the first meticulous control, the briar is then "cuddled" for about two years until the seasoning deemed suitable for processing is reached. Each piece is designed by Roberto and it is initially worked with small machines, also personally built by hand by dad Peppino. After the first processing of the air hole and the chamber, the manufacturing continues with an endless series of manual processes. Additionally, the methacrylate stem is made almost entirely by hand from plates cut into bars, then drilled and refined with sand paper.

All of the ninety steps are considered by Roberto of extreme importance to deem his "creatures" finished and ready to be shown to his customers.
