The year 1889 marks an important date for the Fiorillo family, as it sees the set up of their business as fabric merchants and the opening of their first shop in Piazza del Municipio in Naples.
After a succession of three generations, all of a sudden, it seemed that Paolo Fiorillo wanted to leave behind the long family tradition in order to pursue his career in the music field, but in 1976 he got to know Diego Della Valle, with whom he established a relationship of deep friendship and esteem. This friendship also ensured that Paolo Fiorillo took over the reins of the family business.
Right from the start, the relationship between Paolo Fiorillo and Diego Della Valle became fundamental for the evolution of the business and since 1984 they have collaborated for years side by side in the launch of brands such as Tod's, Hogan and Fay and still today, after more than 30 years, Paolo Fiorillo continues to manage the distribution of these brands in partnership with the Della Valle family. Over the years, Paolo Fiorillo has also become the owner of many multi-brand stores in various cities such as Naples, Salerno and Reggio Calabria.
Today, their family-run business is guaranteed by Luca Manfredi Fiorillo, Paolo's son, who is keeping on the expansion of the company thanks to his abroad experiences.
