1946: Artsana is founded.
Pietro Catelli founded Artsana, a sales agency specialised in the production and distribution of products for venapuncture and medication, that quickly became market leader.
1958: the Chicco brand is born.
After the birth of his son Enrico, affectionately named Chicco, Pietro Catelli has its greatest entrepreneurial intuition: to create a brand specialised in the field of baby care, to meet all the needs of the babies from 0 to 36 months. This marked the beginning of the trademark Chicco, a brand which soon became the reference for parents and established itself as the market leader in Italy and then worldwide.
