The story begins when David Riccardo, born in a small town in Italy opened a shop to display antique cars in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. He called his shop “El Trebol” and soon after opening fine pieces of architectural elements salvaged from homes, palaces, churches, and buildings that were scheduled for demolition were added to the store.
As the business developed, David needed additional space to hold the many architectural treasures. This was the beginning of the “Trebol Warehouse”. David’s three children, Alfredo Maria, Aquilles, Abelardo, and Antonio Julio joined the family business to help David.
The family business evolved and went in a different direction. El Trebol became a lime company.
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.
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 Nito each brought unique and creative gifts to the business.
Antonio David, son of Antonio Julio 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.
Enzo, a cousin of Antonio Amighini opened the shop in Verona, Italy so he could continue in the Amighini Architectural tradition. Thus, a new era of the company began.
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.
The fourth generation of the Amighini family began working in the family business. Adrian, a trained engineer with his brother Cristian, a progressive and enthusiastic architect combined their training, professionalism, and knowledge and further enhanced what Amighini Architectural could offer to the market.
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.
Antonio Amighini and is oldest son, adrian traveled to the U.S. In search of new markets. Their pursuit led them to a very promising new market in denver, colorado. The auction houses there quickly were delighted to introduce such wonderful architectural elements from both italy and argentina and americans seemed to enjoy adding this antique european flavor to their home designs.
Sebastian, the youngest son of Antonio David and member of the fourth generation joined the business. His training as an architect and desire to grow in the United States was perfect and the start of a new beginning. His vision was going to take the company into the next phase of growth.
The company continues to see a high demand for unique European architectural pieces in the United States. Amighini Architectural opens a US location on the East Coast in New Jersey. The company is now selling world wide and operating in three countries.
Amighini decides to expand once more. Many of the company’s clients are requesting products for projects on the West Coast. The Amighini family opens a 22K square foot warehouse in Anaheim, CA in order to better serve our clients and growing demand.
