FOPE has its roots within the goldsmithing traditions of Italy, which has its historical and manufacturing centre in the city of Vicenza. Umberto Cazzola opened the first FOPE workshop in 1929. In the same pioneering spirit, his son Odino transformed this workshop into a state-of-the-art factory and invented adjustable metal watch bracelets, while nephews Umberto and Ines created the iconic Novecento mesh and patented Flex’it technology. The 4th generation, with Giulia, reached international success; the family business is now listed on the Milan stock exchange and is today one of the most well-known and popular fine jewellery brands in Italy.
