In 1928 Targetti begins in the heart of Florence's historical center. It's a little artisan shop, selling lamps and related goods. In the late 190s Targetti starts producing chandeliers. The dimensions of the firm grow quickly and it becomes a fully integrated industry equipped with modern machineries and specialized technicians. Today the company produces and markets over 3000 lighting fixtures and systems which are the perfect synthesis of function and design. Technically advanced lighting fixtures backed by top level research meet with the pure shapes and essential lines of consistently up-to-date designs, suitable for any architectural context.
