A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME

A family tradition built by four generations since 1930

1930 The story begins when Davide, who was born in northern Italy in a small town called Verona. Gifted with an adventurous soul and passionate about architecture, inherited from his father, travels around Europe looking for architectural masterpieces. The beauty of the different epochs of architecture led him to want to have a bit of that history in his possession. The way he found to have every style, every detail, every fashion transition was by collecting the best doors of these mansions ornamented with even the smallest detail. His doors are like a summary of what you would find when entering these majestic houses and buildings. When World War II came, some of Davide's brothers immigrated to Argentina, where he would later follow them.
1940 The company began to grow as Davide’s 4 sons: Alfredo Maria, Aquiles, Abelardo, and Antonio Julio and also his nephews began to work in the family business. They decided to build a warehouse with all the architectural works they had and the demolition work they also extracted from them.
1947 The company began to grow as Davide’s 4 sons: Alfredo Maria, Aquiles, Abelardo, and Antonio Julio and also his nephews began to work in the family business. They decided to build a warehouse with all the architectural works they had and the demolition work they also extracted from them.
1955 The second generation of the Amighini family joined the business and began working on governmental renovation projects in the heart of Buenos Aires. People began requesting special architectural elements for their private residences and the business developed and once again flourished.
1960 The third generation of the Amighini family placed their mark on the business by further growing it and remembering the original goals. Raul, Ricardo, Fredy, and Antonio David, each brought unique and creative gifts to the business.
1980 Antonio David, Antonio Julio’s son found that his interests were like his grandfather and focused on seeking great architectural pieces. He dedicated himself to re-establishing the wonderful reputation of the Amighini family. The company rapidly grew and became prestigious once again.
1982 Enzo, a cousin of Antonio Amighini re opened the shop in Verona, Italy so he could continue in the Amighini Architectural tradition. Thus, a new era of the company began.
1983 Casa Amighini (Argentina) and Amighini Demolizioni (Italy) collected many pieces from palaces, parks, hotels, and other great buildings. They were making a mark in the world of antiques and architecture.
1985 The fourth generation of the Amighini family began working in the family business. Antonio David's sons: Adrian (Engineer), Cristian (Architect) and Sebastian (Architect). The progressive and enthusiastic brothers combined their training, professionalism, and knowledge to further enhanced what Amighini could offer to the market.
1992 The Amighini family begins their first attempt to enter the American market. Auction houses in Denver, Chicago, and New York began to eagerly await shipments from the Amighini warehouses.
1993 Antonio David Amighini along his first son, Adrian, traveled to the U.S. searching for new markets. Their pursuit led them to a very promising new market in Denver, Colorado. The auction houses were delighted to introduce such wonderful architectural elements from both Italy and Argentina. The American colleagues and customers seemed to enjoy adding this antique european flavor to their home designs.
1994 Adrian and Cristian, the oldest sons of Antonio David who already had several years of training, began to look for a place to set up a fixed and own local to send all the merchandise. The desire to start growing in the United States was already in their minds, the idea of a new beginning was already in their minds. This new vision was to take the company into its next phase of growth.
