L.E.G.O. was founded in 1900 as a small artisan workshop on the initiative of Pietro Olivotto. Since then, five generations of entrepreneurs have succeeded each other by renewing and adapting the company to a rapidly evolving market.

Today L.E.G.O. is one of the leading European producers of quality books. The operating divisions can offer the entire production cycle in-house providing the market with reliability and speed of production.

The foundation

After working as a bookbinder at the Raschi printing house in Vicenza, in 1900 Pietro Olivotto started his own business assisted by his wife Vittoria. This craft bindery becomes the origin of the family business.

In 1920 Giovanni, Pietro’s son, joined the company with his wife Maria. The small bindery gradually introduces the mechanization of production and begins its transformation. In the late 1930’s, the L.E.G.O. factory employed around 150 people.

In 1940 Piero, Giovanni’s son, starts his collaboration in the company. He helps to rebuild the factory after it was damaged by a bombing raid during World War II and sets the stage for future expansion by developing the commercial structure.
