About

Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks was founded on one man’s dream, and that man was Paolo Rozzi—the great-grandfather of current company leader, Nancy Rozzi. Paolo founded the company in Southern Italy in 1895, before emigrating shortly afterward to Pennsylvania. In 1930, after significant company growth, Paolo’s son Arthur Rozzi Sr.—alongside his two sons Joseph and Paul—moved the business to Cincinnati, Ohio, where they molded the company into what it is today. Now at the helm of Nancy Rozzi, daughter of Joseph, Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks draws from their integrity and impeccable craftsmanship to innovate the international fireworks industry.

Who We Are

Why are fireworks so mesmerizing? Is it the surprise of sudden sparks? The heart-skipping beat of suspense between the first flash and the final bang of radiant color, light, and noise? Or perhaps it’s the people we watch fireworks with, the traditions of togetherness they commemorate; the passage of time, and the power of community.

Rozzi’s Fireworks harnesses the irresistible magic of fireworks. For five generations we have created award winning pyrotechnic displays that highlight our impeccable craftsmanship, emphasis on innovation, and dedicated, passionate partnerships with our clients and communities.

The work we do is hands-on, hand crafted, and incredibly detailed. We are proud to support long-time American traditions, and proud to have been one of the first companies in the world to combine music with our fireworks, ushering in a new era of the industry. The pyrotechnic displays we design can be as large-scale as a spectacular pyromusical for an audience of 100,000, or as simple as a treasured annual fireworks display for a small community. No matter the project, we ensure each
of our designs is a sensational, memorable,innovative experience — because we know we only have one shot to get it right.

Planning a fireworks event with Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks ensures the expertise of 400 pyrotechnicians, a strong national and international network, and a tailor-made, imaginative, impeccably designed display.
