In honor of its 50th anniversary, Dr. Bruno Zanet, President of Marmi Bruno Zanet, and his son, Giorgio Zanet, General Manager, presented the company’s new stand at Marmomacc 2008.

Bruno Zanet toasted the 50 years of his family business with a gala dinner that included 400 guests who hailed from all over the world to celebrate this important moment. 

VERONA, ITALY - This year’s festivities for the 50th anniversary of the Zanet Group, which had already begun in Brazil during the Vitória Stone Fair, were continued in the heart of Verona during Marmomacc, which was held from October 2 to 5, 2008. This was an important event for all those who have contributed to the exponential growth of the internationally renowned company, reports the Zanet Group.

The get-together took place during Marmomacc, where the company’s new stand was presented for this celebration - 50 years of entrepreneurial history that began in 1958 and has brought together generations and professionals who share desire and enthusiasm for achieving this company project.

Bruno Zanet, President of Marmi Bruno Zanet, toasted the 50 years of his family business with a gala dinner that included 400 guests, who hailed from all over the world to celebrate this important moment. Among those in attendance were: Dr. Ghinato, Vice-President of the Chamber of Commerce; Federico Sboarina, Alderman for Sport, Recreation, Ecology and the Environment for the City of Verona; Guilherme Gomes Dias, Secretary for Economic Development of the State of Espirito Santo, Brazil; and architect Gabbiani, President of Ala AssoArchitetti.

As a way to capture special memories from the last 50 years, the company published a book of interviews with Zanet.

As a way to capture special memories from the last 50 years, the company published a book of interviews with Zanet. The book was written by Uberto Tommasi, a long-time friend who has succeeded in capturing and conveying in these pages the fatigues and joys that occurred over the last 50 years. The book expresses the strong will and determination that led 20-year-old Zanet to undertake a new business without any financial backing and who has, over half a century, created an intense network of human relations around himself thanks to his many business trips, reports Marmi Bruno Zanet.

The ongoing search for new materials led Zanet to Brazil, where the Vitória port was set up, and today it is the main hub for exporting marble and granite, alongside the large storage yard in Volargne, Verona, that was created in 1972.

Through the years, Zanet has also been involved in architectural achievements in nations around the world, including Spain, France, Germany, Austria, the U.S., Canada, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia and Indonesia. 

The party was a celebration without formalities, where all participants were able to share the basic values that characterize the Zanet family and on which the international firm has been founded, according to the company.
