A Family Story of Design and Passion.

The year 2020 marked an anniversary of great significance for Del Fabbro: 100 years of a historic presence in the world of furniture and design in Arco.

This year, October 1, 2023, marks a momentous date for Del Fabbro, an extraordinary chapter in our history. The event took place in the exclusive setting of the Spiaggia Olivi in Riva Del Garda, and on this special day we intertwined our deepest passions: history, family, design and territory, creating a magical atmosphere that we will cherish forever.

We opened our doors to the public and invited everyone to participate in our exciting journey through the history of Del Fabbro: a century of dedication, passion and success.Listening to the participants’ stories and testimonies united different generationsin an affectionate embrace between past and present celebrating milestones achieved and moments shared. It was an authentic tribute to family, both those by blood and those bound by affection and sharing.

Del Fabbro’s events

In an atmosphere filled with emotion and deep tradition, we organized two dedicated moments within our main event. In the morning, we gathered as a family, together with our collaborators and historical employees to exchange stories and curiosities and celebrate our centennial milestone, surrounded by the beauty of the enchanting landscape.

Today, we started to tell you about our history. We retraced this extraordinary journey spanning more than 100 years surrounded by warmth and affection that went beyond expectations.

Between emotion and endless joy, we could only thank you all for being part of the great Del Fabbro Family.

In the late afternoon, we immersed ourselves in the fascinating world of design through an engaging multi-voice dialogue. It was an extraordinary occasion for designers, architects and design enthusiasts to share unique perspectives on the art of shaping and designing space, in the company of truly special guests.

It was an honor and a privilege to share this moment with Maurizio Riva of RIVA1920, architects and designers Baldessari e Baldessari, Dario Presotto, the founder of MODULNOVA, and Matteo Bianco commercial director of LAGO. Their experiences in the field significantly enriched our dialogue on the evolution of living design.

The magnificent location added a special touch, creating a deep connection between the day of celebration and the area that hosted us. Although the event lasted only one day, we felt at home, just as we want our customers to feel. This time, it was you who gave us that feeling. The excitement and enthusiasm of October 1, 2023 will live with us forever.
