Loreto 1872: the BRANCONDI company is formed. It is at the forefront of what is an emerging industry both in Italy and internationally – the production of religious articles.
Loreto 2000: a new company – Nuova Ital Art (NIA) – is established out of the former FANINI and JOHNSON CONTROL PLASTICS businesses. The new company is geared towards product innovation using state-of-the-art techniques, in order to make the most of the traditions that originated with Brancondi more than a century ago and were then developed by Fanini. This forward-looking approach makes NIA a beacon of Italian quality on the international market.
