The history of FARTO

He began in 1935 in a small artisan laboratory located in Florence in Via Dei Della Robbia, where Marino Pianigiani, a chemist and pharmaceutical expert, animated by a strong intuition and far-sightedness, started the development and production of some medicines. These are the years in which we are witnessing the passage from the “medical science” constituted by the presence of the “doctor-clinician” who makes the diagnosis and prescribes remedies and from the preparatory pharmacist, to the discovery and marketing of the first drugs of biological and natural extraction origin, with intent to introduce the concept of drug as a consumer good extended to broader groups of users, the pharmacist distributor and not just a preparer, and the pharmaceutical industry, which in the following years will develop the figure and centrality of the role of practical medicine. In this context, FARTO takes its first steps, organizing a productive and commercial structure of ten employees, suitable for serving the city and provincial territory.

The years of the Second World War slowed the rise of FARTO, which resumed full development at its conclusion. The company, in recent years, has increased its production capacity, in some therapeutic areas, according to the treatment of better known and studied diseases, in the post-war period, and opens up to national prominence, with the distribution and presence of its brands in Italian pharmacies.

FARTO, around the 60s was incorporated by AMELIX, a pharmaceutical industry with over 200 employees, whose owner was Matteo Cioni’s father.

These brief hints of history are useful to understand how the current Italian pharmaceutical industry, despite the variegated presence of multinationals that have exercised a decisive part in the growth of sensitivity to the use of medical therapies and that have expanded the pharmaceutical market, is a daughter of the entrepreneurial skills of those who pioneered the idea, then realized, of creating a pharmaceutical company.

Many years have passed, and much has changed in the Italian pharmaceutical scene. In order to retrace the family tradition and the constitutive values ‚Äč‚Äčthat had marked the era of FARTO, Matteo Cioni, who has been working in the pharmaceutical world for more than thirty years, and who as a child had taken the first steps inside the workshop of production of the father, he reproposes with pride, ability and passion, the brand “FARTO”, as the only company name, which brings together the marketing lines that make up the essence and structure of the pharmaceutical company.
