Oral History Information
Riccardo Clerici is the grandson of Cosimo Pomarico, the classically trained clarinetist who in 1960 began making his own unique mouthpieces. Mr. Pomarico developed a crystal mouthpiece, which became the signature product of his company. In addition to the designs, he also built the facing machines for making the mouthpieces. Riccardo joined the company alongside his father, Giorgio, with a focus on building up the exporting side of the company.
