The first electric oven for pastry.

Everything starts when Placido Moretti, a true pioneer, creates and patents his first electric oven for pastry in a small artisan laboratory in Pesaro, while all around him bakers were using wood burning ovens almost exclusively. The success was immediate and led to the foundation of Brevetti Moretti.
