The milestones of our corporate history

Magnetti Building carries every milestone of its long corporate history within itself.

A constant sedimentation that started in April 1874 and which has not yet finished, that has forged the current corporate organisational structure as well as its relentless openness to innovation.

These are the main milestones in its most recent corporate history:
