27 June 2019


Rome, 27 June 2019The year 2019 marks the first centenary of the Angelini group, which presents a dedicated logo for the occasion. Founded in Ancona, Italy, in 1919 by the 32-year-old pharmacist Francesco Angelini, the group has witnessed exponential growth made possible by constant innovation and is today an international industrial entity and leader in the health and well-being area of the pharmaceutical and mass-market sectors.

A logo dedicated to these 100 years will be featured on internal, external and brand communications throughout 2019. Designed by the communications agency Armando Testa in honour of a historic collaboration, the new logo expresses the group’s history, present and future in just a few square centimeters.

The graphic image encapsulates many meaningful references: the Angelini logo, the ‘A’ which is mainly associated with pharmaceutical products and which expresses solidity and precision, is combined with the 100 year milestone. The significance of the centenary is expressed by the slogan “In the future since 1919”. These few words embody the entrepreneurial code of the Angelini family: solidity and the constant urge for innovation.

In addition to the logo, Angelini is launching a website dedicated to the centenary — — that will be updated on the initiatives that the group has been planning for this important anniversary, throughout 2019.
