Company history began in 1921 in Settimo Torinese, when the brothers Pietro and Girolamo Giacomazzi, who had worked for Pagliero, began to work on their own to start a company together with Felice Favetta.[1] Initial activities were related to the turning of materials such as ivory, galalith and bone. The attention to fountain pens production seems to be derived from the Pietro son, Dino, that at dissolution of the partnership with Felice Favetta focused the company on this kind of activities.

Giacomazzi worked mainly in contract manufacturing, and no pens bearing its name can be found at least until the 1950s. The only trademark that is definitely its own is Olimpica for which there is a registration in 1944 by Dino Giacomazzi (Reg. Gen. N. 90736), other quality brands which production is attributed to Giacomazzi are Point red (which however was an Ubaldo Massari of Mastilo trademark), Sirium and Sirium Extra.[2]

But according to Pier Luigi Giacomazzi, other commissioned productions were carried out by the company for Everest, Aster, Silpa, Omer, Morans and Aviostil.

Notes

  1. the Giacomazzi data come from the Silvio Bertotto book "Settimo Torinese - Una città in punta di penna".
  2. but for the latter there is an evidence: on a pen with this brand was found (see this photo) a reference to the utility model N. 22111 registered by the "Fratelli Giacomazzi".
