Pietro Catelli founds Artsana, a sales agency specialising in the production and distribution of medication, which soon becomes a market leader.
Following the birth of his son Enrico, affectionately nicknamed Chicco, Pietro Catelli had his greatest entrepreneurial intuition yet: to create a brand specialising in baby care, which would cater for all the needs of children aged between 0 and 36 months. Thus the Chicco brand was born, becoming a reference point for parents within just a few years and establishing itself as market leader in Italy and later worldwide.
Artsana opens its European branch in Spain, its expands into the Far East and opens branches in the Us, Turkey, Brazil and Argentina.
New branches open, including in India, Russia, Mexico and Poland.
