Esperia was founded in 1952 in Poggibonsi, Siena, the venture developed thanks to the initiative of three young friends, Romano Conforti, Eugenio Cortigiano and Mario Moni, who shared previous work experience in the historic SACE glassworks.
At first Esperia produced lighting fixtures for the bath environment, but starting in the 1960s the firm branched out across the whole technical lighting sector, thanks to remarkable structural and productive growth.
During this period Esperia also began a fertile, lasting relationship with Prof. Angelo Brotto.
The first expansions date back to this period, along with the debut of the company at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, with the participation at Euroluce in 1969, the first of a long series. The brand achieved great international acclaim and began to explore new collaborations with leading exponents of the art of glassmaking, such as Venini.
Today Esperia is an example of excellence, engaged on a daily basis in research and development for the creation of innovative contemporary projects.
The firm is now run by the second generation, with the children of Romano Conforti, Riccardo and Giuliana, and the third generation, with Jacopo, driven by a shared design vision projected towards the future.
