1962 to date - Brionvega
Television was introduced to Italy in 1954, and color was first broadcast there in 1977.
The Italian Brionvega brand is produced and distributed by the Formenti Group. The Group is the main producer of color television sets in Italy today.
Quoting the Brionvega website:
The company was founded in 1945, and initially manufactured audio products. In the early 1960s, two unusual portable television sets, designed by Marco Zanuso and Rich Sapper, were marketed by the name "Doney" (1962) and "Algol" (1964). These designs are timeless and enduring.
In 1969 Brionvega released the "Cubo" television. This set was designed by Mario Bellini and became a classic of that era and is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. An updated version of this television was produced in the 1990s.
