Angelo Gaetano Sciolari is a creative Italian designer and entrepreneur. He has made a considerable contribution to the success of Italian design around the world particularly in the United States. During his career, he designed incredible and beautiful lights such as the ‘Mod A5011’ hanging lamp (circa 1950), the ‘4079’ floor lamp (1965), and the Cubic chandelier (the 1970s).
Angelo Gaetano Sciolari was born in 1927 in Italy and after he graduated in architecture, the young man came back to his first passion: cinema and filmmaking. However, after his father’s death in 1949, Sciolari had to manage the family company of light production where he transformed it into an international enterprise.
