It was founded by Piero di Pierri with the assistance of his brothers Giorgio and Gianfranco who were involved in the multitude of activities associated with the brand. The company’s activities spanned a wide range of sectors: from design to interior decoration on commission for villas and hotels; from the architecture of gardens to the production of exclusive furniture distributed all-over the world.
