Ticinese zest for life and flavour, pride in fine craftsmanship and an uncompromising commitment to quality.

This very traditional brand is known all over Switzerland and is attracting increasing numbers of satisfied consumers elsewhere as well. Rapelli boasts a wide range of products for all meals of the day, every day of the year.

Rapelli stands for the Cultura della Bottega, fine craftsmanship of the Mastri Salumieri combined and the typical atmosphere of the Ticino way of life.

Its core competence is charcuterie, with traditional as well as modern varieties of Ticino salumeria. Salami, salametti and cured ham prepared in many different ways are but a few examples of the vast range of delicacies available in this product segment. Other highlights are authentic antipasti and prepared dishes such as tartare, carpaccio or vitello tonnato round out Rapelli's offering.


Today as then: good things in life are there to share

Mario Rapelli laid the foundation stone for his bottega in 1929, in the picturesque village of Stabio, south of Lake Lugano. On 6 April 1929 the young Mario Rapelli opened his Bottega in Via Giulia in Stabio. This marked the beginning of a new chapter in Ticino Salumeria culture.
