Mareco Luce

Origin: Italy


It’s the 1960s and a small company makes its first illuminated signs out of plastic material for hotels, cafés, restaurants along the Adriatic coast of Italy, also known as the Riviera. A stretch of coast experiencing a building boom.

Following specific customer requests , and the need for the business to create a steady work-flow during the winter months, the company started to make the first simple plastic light fixtures. It drew on its specific experience with high quality plastics and the existing methods of moulding and forming.

The success of these simple light fixtures surpassed all expectations and led Roberto Maretti to dedicate himself wholly to the manufacturing of light fittings…it’s1973, and Mareco Luce is born.
