Renato Scaglione was born in Turin in 1932. He studied painting under Felice Casorati and while he demonstrated great capabilities as an artist, he had to join his elder brother, a sewing company representative, in Milan to seek greater economic opportunities. Post-war Italy was experiencing an economic boom and families in the countryside joined this entrepreneurship.
Renato traveled throughout the small villages outside of Milan selling sewing machines; it was during one of those trips that he met Celsa, fell in love with her and decided to marry her.
Renato and Celsa shared a strong passion for art and beauty and they decided to use their creativity and artisanal knowledge to launch a new business: in 1966 they established the company, that we know today as Maglificio Scaglione.
Scaglione is the epitome of a traditional Italian family business
