Everything starts here. As is often the case in Italian manufacturing, MASIERO is a family business. The company was formed back in 1981 as Emme Pi Light, and assumed the name of MASIERO in 2005, when Enrico Maria Masiero, the son of the company's founders Paolo Masiero and Marilena Pellizzato joined the firm. The official debut was in 2009.
