Vivai del Sud was established in the 1950s in Rome as a specialist in landscape gardening, restoration of large historical parks (in addition to the design of bold "Jardin d'hiver" on terraces and attics in the historic centers of Italian and foreign cities). The new-found culture of the use of greenery became very popular and "Vivai del Sud" employed the best architects and designers who found great success operating nurseries of the south as well as all over Italy. At the end of the 1960s, Vivai del Sud consolidated its position with integrated architecture companies, positioning excellence in design and furniture and furniture production through its plants in Italy. In 1970 the new Roman school was internationally recognized with Vivai del Sud prevalent on the names of companies operating in the high-end fashion and luxury sectors.
