Since the year of its founding, the production of calegaro has carved out, with its homewares, an important place in its activity as a luxury entrepreneur.For tiffany, with an exclusive line of cutlery; for bulgari, for whom we produced all the decorations for a major chocolate factory that opened its doors in Tokyo; for mikimoto, with the particular set of children's items. This list is longer and it could continue with vases and objects produced for hermes or for montenapoleone, with the collection of creators buccellati, or with the lines pavilion and palio, bearing the name of massimo vignelli. Also, let's not forget the collaborative work and many productions for riva, fiat, alitalia, bugatti, grisogono or rolex, all of which give our company the credit of being recognized for the original peculiarity of being able to produce custom items. In 1921, calegaro goldsmiths opened their doors to del santo str. In the centre of Padua, a few meters from the famous Basilica of St. It was originally an artisan workshop with its own shop and the basic idea was to spread the culture of money. Not an easy goal to achieve by a store that would later become the first producer of silver items in Padua.
Its founder, Luigi calegaro, was inspired by the tradition of the Venetian school and matched his passion and dedication to hard work and grew the factory. Its entrepreneurial capacity was quickly demonstrated by the application of procedures and the use of equipment that allowed to increase production without neglecting the superior quality of the articles. With the expansion of post-war padua, the historic centre proved too small for what had become, in 1960, a fully developed society.By 1969, moving to praglia at the foot of the euganean hills, had become a necessary step. The passion for precious metal required premises that had to be up to the level reached by society. The answer to this was found in a wonderful 19th century mansion that had belonged to emo capodilista, located 7 km from Padua and a few minutes drive from abano term. I'm happy to combine the expedition. This item is made of metal.
