1961: the Scavolini brothers, Elvino and Valter, decide that the time is ripe for using the experience they have acquired as artisans in the furniture industry to launch their own business in Pesaro. They choose to focus on modular kitchens, a symbol of progress and dream for Italians during the economic boom years. 2011: still faithful after half a century to their original idea of producing kitchens, Scavolini has become one of the most successful and established manufacturers in its business sector. Famous as “the best seller from Italy” in its home country, Scavolini also has a strong market presence on all five continents. Supported by a wide range of photographs and illustrations, this book tells the story of the company’s evolution in a detailed account of the Scavolini history, describing its first steps in the 1960s, the involvement of celebrity representatives Raffaella Carrà and Lorella Cuccarini, the commercial success of the 1980s, and the company’s interest in experimentation and design during more recent decades. Scavolini 1961–2011: fifty years of quality kitchens, and an exemplary contribution to the “Made in Italy” phenomenon.
