Founded 1958 in Italy
Based in Mantua

Corneliani is first and foremost a family, and secondly a solid business. It all began in Mantua in the Thirties with Alfredo Corneliani, one of the pioneers in men's fashion in Italy, who made crafted high quality raincoats and outerwear that would soon prove to be extremely popular.

But it would be his sons, Claudio and Carlalberto, who would found Corneliani in 1958, creating a company whose size and identity made it a flagship for Italian-made quality around the world.Now in its third generation, the Corneliani family has built up and fostered a legacy that combines passion with experienced craftsmanship.
