For more than half a century, AMIGHINI has been managed by generations of the Amighini family exploring the juxtaposition of modern design with traditional architectural elements.

1930 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.
1935 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.
1947 The family business evolved and went in a different direction. El Trebol became a lime company.
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 Nito each brought unique and creative gifts to the business.
1980 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.
1982 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.
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. Sebastian a progressive and enthusiastic architect combined his training, professionalism, and knowledge and 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 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.
1994 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.
