Esperia was founded in 1952 in Poggibonsi, Siena by Romano Conforti, Eugenio Cortigiano and Mario Moni, who shared previous work experience in the historic SACE glassworks.
At first Esperia produced lighting fixtures for the bath environment, but starting in the 1960s the firm branched out across the whole technical lighting sector.
During this period Esperia also began a long lasting relationship with Prof. Angelo Brotto.
Esperia began exhibiting in the 1960’s at Salone del Mobile in Milan, along with exhibiting at Euroluce in beginning in 1969. The brand achieved great international acclaim and began to explore new collaborations with leading exponents of the art of glassmaking, such as Venini.
Today Esperia is an example of excellence, engaged on a daily basis in research and development for the creation of innovative contemporary projects.
The firm is now run by the second generation, the children of Romano Conforti, Riccardo and Giuliana, as well as the third generation, Jacopo, who are all driven by a shared design vision for the future.
