Who we are
FARFISA: MADE IN ITALY. MADE IN “LE MARCHE”
Farfisa’s entire design, strategic and production potential is rooted in its land of origin, Le Marche, renowned for its history, innovation, industriousness and design: alongside its 5,000 museums and 4,600 registered food specialities, the territory houses several “Made in Italy” industrial brands that currently implement and export a business culture rooted in competitive factors, such as precision, research, training, globalisation, passion, technical excellence and beauty.
Le Marche, region of origin and headquarters of Farfisa, is situated in the heart of Italy and aptly summarises the country’s best qualities: superb scenery, a considerable and distinguished heritage of national cultural and artistic treasures, and a varied fabric of splendid historical towns featuring some of Italy’s most representative industrial districts: their special production approach is based on “fine industrial craftsmanship”, which also characterises Farfisa, whereby managerial strength relies on fine craftsmanship, extreme reliability and a continuous thirst for research.
The Farfisa brand stems from transformation, a quality that – ever since its industrial venture began – blends communication, art and technology, design and engineering, research and intuition: a typical “Made in Italy" story that is unique in the international scenario, capable of merging inspiration, vision and expertise currently exported worldwide to over 60 countries.
An acronym for Fabbriche Riunite di Fisarmoniche (“Reunited Accordion Factories”), the Farfisa brand was founded in 1946. The technical and technological excellence of its products soon attracted the interest and acclaim of the international markets: portable record players and Metz television sets defined its late 1950s’ production, while pioneering studies on electronics in the early 1960s made Farfisa the first company to mass produce the electronic organ, and the legendary Compact organ would forge the sound of the rock era (it was used by Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, Genesis, Frank Zappa, Elton John and many others). Subsequently, in early 1960s, the company diversified into the intercom and videointercom sectors.
In 1967, as a division of the legendary “Farfisa Strumenti Musicali” brand, we were among the first companies to envision, manufacture and diffuse intercom systems in Italy and overseas. In 1993 we became an independent division with our own name. To tackle and win the globalisation challenge, we devoted greater emphasis on understanding customer needs and on product quality, aided by a solid industrial tradition and the precious gem of authentic Italian craftsmanship.
We now celebrate our 50th anniversary by redefining the company through our history, to offer the market and our customers a fascinating and ambitious renewal project: vision and scenarios characterised by a renewed sense of beauty, which we intend to promote through the merging of design and technology to enhance the comfort, security and performance of our daily communication.
