Italian jewelry house founded in 1969 by Lino Raggio. It produces jewelry designed by Raggio himself and Gianfranco Signori. Owing to the excellent quality and originality of the designs, the pieces -- made in metal with special glazes, in glass and in synthetic resins -- are often commissioned by big name designers who use them to complement their own creations on fashion show runways, among them, Albini, Armani, Dior, Valentino, Versace, and Moschino. In the early 1980s, they opened a shop on Via Spiga in Milan. Improving production and boosted by proposals for trend-based leather goods, in May 1999, Lino Raggio opened a new shop in Corso Garibaldi in Milan, while retaining the original point of sale in Turin on Via Monte di Pietŕ.
