Our history


The activity borns in the second half of the 19th Century, with an orthopedic shop just beside the old City Hospital.
After WWI the owner Stefano Galvanoni develops a significant experience in artificial limbs and prosthesis manifacture.

In 1927 Mrs Clotilde Mangili, future mother of Carlo Bianchi, begins her activity in the shop as a corset maker.
At that time the shop already supplied the local hospital with some surgical instruments imported directly from Germany.


In 1938 Luigi Bianchi (1st generation) buys the activity from Mr Galvanoni and in 1939 marries Clotilde Mangili.

In 1958 Carlo Bianchi begins his experience in the family shop.

In 1967Carlo Bianchi takes over Luigi and in a short time gains an important distributorship with Ethicon (company of Johnson & Jonhson Group). The beginning of this relationship has been fundamental to the developement of the company business.
