Baleri Italia, founded by Enrico Baleri and Marilisa Decimo in 1984, is the iconic brand of the 20th Century the years of sobriety and rigor of forms/functions, the ultimate expression of a certain pragmatic and unattainable design idea; in pursuit of the perfect, non-obsolete, non-flashy, consistent and international object. Evergreen objects and collections, signed by great masters and newcomers who then became the references in terms of style, giving life to a classical-contemporary universe that now has found its vitality, production, communication, and commercial strength.
