The origins of a brand
Vittorio Galli and Giovanni Volonte start the shoe manufacture Brunate. Exclusively high quality children's shoes are produced.
The founder Vittorio Galli passes. His daughter Letizia of just 19 years assumes the management of the company and carries the immense burden of making a mark for the company during the second world war.
The founder Giovanni Volonte passes.
The oldest son of Vittorio Galli, Elia, returns from the war and joins the company.
A huge fire completely destroys the production facility and the adjacent storage facility. Reconstruction follows shortly.
The Galli heirs
Isaia e Costantino Galli, sons of Vittorio, join the company. Together the Galli heirs push forward the company with large success.
The production facility in Lomazzo is enlarged. Additionally a facility is built in Tradate, 15 km away. The number of employees reaches 200.
Production is full. The high quality Brunate children's shoes are very popular in Italy and Europe.
Economic turbulence particularly in the sector of shoe production affects Italy. Many firms have to close their doors. Brunate is successful in adapting to the challenging economic conditions.
The company is strategically restructured and starts the production of women's shoes.
The market of high quality children's shoes becomes more challenging. Brunate stops the production of children's shoes and concentrates completely on women's shoes.
The children of Costantino and Isaia and thereby the third Galli generation enter the business.
The third generation
The third generation assumes the management of the company.
Costantino Galli passes.
Brunate opens its first Flagship Store. In the heart of the city of Munich, clients find an extensive and diverse collection of Brunate shoes.
