Vendorafa was founded by Mario Lombardi in Valenza, Italy in 1951. In a nation already known for its incredible goldsmiths, the company was able to establish itself through a dedication to quality, professionalism and efficient production. “Creativity, craftsmanship and technology have always represented the soul of our collections,” says Daniela Lombardi, Vendorafa's creative director.
This dedication to quality and inventiveness is also reflected in Vendorafa's studio, where the ateliers are illuminated by natural light. The headquarters were designed in 1968 by noted architect Ignazio Gardella and are cited as the first example of an edifice designed specifically for working with gold.
