Maimeri Artist Colors
The history of Maimeri dates back to 1923 when two brothers, Gianni and Carlo Maimeri, founded the company in Milan. Only a few years later, in 1929, the American stock market crashed, influencing economics around the world. Yet, the company persevered and even upgraded their operations during that time. Decades later in 1951, the company was inherited by Leone Maimeri (Gianni’s son) after his father’s death. A natural leader and businessman, Leone guided the expansion of the company from a small operation into a company that is known around the world for quality artist materials.
