Valenti was founded by Renzo Pighi in 1929. Investing for the future in the middle of a slump on the basis of an industrial development model was the first example of courageous foresight. Contact with the most important designers of the period and with experimental processes helped to create a climate of cultural tension that made Valenti the leading Italian lighting star by the 1960s. The guidance of Renzo Pighi and his brother Diego led to the creation of design successes such as the Medusa, Pistillo and Hebi lamps. In a moment of extraordinary ferment for Italian design Valenti became a reference for the new generation of designers: from Olaf von Bohr, the Tetrarch studio to Isao Hosoe and it took an active role in the debate regarding the emerging ADI. After the first pioneering phase the market became more complex and demanding. Valenti therefore searched for new forms of lighting but above all for new lighting concepts. The Valentina table lamp and the Miriade wire system were born. These were important results for the company, which attracted internationally renowned designers such as De Pas, D’Urbino, Lomazzi, Raimondi and Bonetto and won several commendations in the Compasso d’Oro. New materials and increasingly streamlined processes distinguish the current industrial phase, where the company works with the designers Borsato, Cortesi and Vietri. PrometoLight is the technical division of Valenti. Our mission is to design and manufacture lighting fixtures with high technical content, using the passion for the Design of VALENTI. Designers involved: Claudio Gambi, Francesco Scatena & David Turini, Lorenzo Palmeri, Rolando Borsato, Ezio Didone, Mario Barbaglia, Carlo Vietri, Giancarlo Fassina & Carlo Forcolini, Giuseppe Raimondi.
