About us

The Doni family, of Florentine-Tuscan origin, has the majority shareholding of DEF, and set off along the road of the ceramic tile industry in 1946, under the guidance of Ranieri Doni.
In 1970, he established the Colorificio Doni Spa, based in Conselice, which, in 1976 was sold to an English multinational.

In 1979 Ranieri, together with his son Roberto, founded DEF di R. Doni Spa and, over the following years, his grandchildren, Laura and Riccardo also joined the company, intent on continuing the 60-year tradition of theDoni family.

Def Mediterraneo was established in Villarreal in 2007 and initially, trade focused on the Spanish, North African and South American markets.
