Dal Negro Company
PLAYING TOGETHER SINCE 1756
Sociability, fun, the pleasure of playing and learning together and sharing moments of joy with family and friends through games. A genuine passion, handed down from generation to generation, bringing both young people and adults together as well as grandparents and children alike. Dal Negro is all of this: two centuries of history dedicated to playing cards, traditional games in wood and now, also a wide selection of games and toys for people of all ages. A company with a strong past now looks to the future. Technological research, evolution in the production processes, building up exclusive partnerships, continuous attention to raw materials together with the quality expected of any product bearing the words: Made in Italy. A perfect blend of tradition and innovation.
TWO CENTURIES OF HISTORY
The origins of the legend
In 1756 at Treviso in Northern Italy a playing cards factory is established of Austrian origin, then acquired by the Dal Negro family in 1928. It is in these years that the business developed both nationally and internationally thanks to the commitment of Teodomiro Dal Negro and his children, Ivone and Leonida.
From playing cards to the world of games
Cases and boxes crafted in wood for roulette, drafts, chess and other board games. In the 60s and 70s Dal Negro begins to diversify production and ride the boom in personalized cards, crafting innumerable packs for companies around the world, such as for Jaguar, Agfa, Philips, Continental, Algida and Venice Casino.
Expansion and acquisitions
In 1995 Francesco Dal Negro becomes the new Chairman of the Board of Directors and after a few years the company moves from their historic factory in Via Fratelli Bandiera to modern premises in Carbonera, more suited to the continuously evolving business. In 2003 and 2004 the growth of the company helps bring about the takeover of two major brands: Masenghini, a well-established factory of playing cards at Bergamo, founded in 1878 and NTP (New Techniques of Plasticizers), specialized in the production of plastic playing cards for Casinos.
