Angelo Gaetano Sciolari (1927-1994), renowned Italian entrepeneur and designer, would not have engaged himself in the world of lighting if it hadn’t been for his father’s premature death. Gaetano had a great passion for cinema. After graduating from the Faculty of Architecture, he began training as a film director with the ambition to turn it into a professional career. However, after the death of his father in 1949, the 22 year old Gaetano was forced to take over the business. Although this new position meant a complete career change, Gaetano directed the company with great vision. In 1954 the company won an international lighting and design competition. Within a few years, he expanded the family business by taking over the exclusive distribution of American Lightolier products. Sciolari was the first Italian manufacturer of lamps sold in the US and simultaneously the biggest importer in the lighting market. Sciolari was also the founder and first president of the trade association of Italian manufacturers of lighting fixtures, still very active today. Besides a successful entrepreneur, Gaetano proved to be a skillful designer. He created numerous lamps for several manufacturers like Stilnovo (Milan), Boulanger (Belgium) and Stilkronen (Germany).
