Faraone, today with its renewed brand, has for years been one of the Italian companies that has succeeded in establishing itself internationally in the field of the production of indoor or outdoor parapets, canopies for doors and windows, indoor stairs, facade systems, doors and partitions. Constant innovation and striving for perfection mark the actions of the company, which was among the first in Italy to exploit the possibilities given by the technology of point fixing of glass, and today is able to offer a wide range of interior and exterior work. From residential buildings in historic centers to soccer stadiums, passing through domestic and professional environments, Faraone offers its services to design professionals, such as interior designers and planners, providing customers with comprehensive support. Faraone embraces a philosophy based on well-defined aspects. The first concerns the care of design. Each of the company's projects, in fact, is the result of in-depth study and research work related to aesthetics and the combination of materials. The collaboration between the elements of the internal team with studies outside the business, then, gives way to experiment and obtain ever new perspectives on the trends that govern the industry. To endure in the market, there also needs to be a willingness to get involved. To do this, the Tortoreto-based company has made a decisive green turn. Faraone's productions use recyclable materials such as glass, aluminum and steel, for productions that are long-lasting and environmentally friendly. The second relates to the safety of indoor and outdoor environments where glass becomes a distinct element capable of providing comfort usability (e.g. of balconies, terraces, walkways, stairways) and freedom to experience spaces. Thanks to its ability to intercept and meet market needs, it is positioned as the benchmark for trendy and safe glass projects. In particular, in the glass parapet sector, reaching over 1,100,000 meters installed since 2009 to date.

Balustrades, staircases, facades: Faraone's transparent architecture

Faraone produces parapets (balustrades) in different materials and shapes, as in the case of Ninfa, a collection of glass parapets with a variety of applications, we find it, for example, in the Gewiss stadium in Bergamo, owned by Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio. The aluminum and glass staircases Mod. Ninfa S, constitute the company's stylistic signature. The same materials are the protagonists of canopies, capable of embellishing outdoor environments of all kinds, as do glass partitions and interior doors. Suspended facades represent one of the company's initial productions. With its point-based fixing, Air System brings light and brightness to buildings, allowing a perfect view of the surrounding landscape. The Klima solution prioritises thermal insulation, a choice devoted to sustainability. Faraone organises events that combine the power of storytelling with customer participation. The Storie di Progetti d'Eccellenza (Stories of Excellent Projects) initiative tells the backstories of some of the company's most iconic productions, like Fuksas' Nuvola in Rome. The Visto che Vista? (Did you see that view?) photo competition rewarded customers' photos of the Ninfa line's transparent balustrades. Finally, l'Arte di generare Arte (The Art of Generating Art), promoted in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts in L'Aquila, encouraged students and young designers to create works that could be integrated into Faraone product lines. Among its significant contributions to the industry and designers, the company is the author of important documents aimed at professionals, including "The Glass Parapet Handbook," "The Glass Parapet Design Guide," "Transparent Architectures," and "Handbook: Parapets for Sports Facility Grandstands."

The history of Faraone, from aluminium frames to steel and glass staircases

In 1969, Sabatino Faraone founded his company in Tortoreto Lido in the province of Teramo to produce aluminium windows and doors. It was a small business with just one small 80 square metre room, one worker and three apprentices. Faraone's story began from these humble artisan beginnings full of expertise. Over the years, the factory expanded and developed its first innovative solutions. In 1978, the first aluminium staircase was presented to the market. It became the fulcrum of activity that placed the company in leadership positions in Italy, Spain and Poland. The 1980s saw the arrival of the first double-skin ventilated façades that met with unprecedented success. During the 1990s, the company expanded its aluminium staircase division, followed in the 2000s with continued innovation in point facades. Another turning point came in 2004 when Faraone met architect Mauricio Cardenas Laverde. Their partnership led to the creation of the first open steel and glass staircases, the company's flagship product, bringing Faraone to the international stage. Building on this momentum, the business began to offer new products for interiors and exteriors - from stainless steel balustrades to railings. Today, Faraone is a symbol of Made-in-Italy success with worldwide installations from Japan to Uruguay to the United States, Turkey and Central Europe. Today the company is led by CEO Flavio Faraone. Faraone is a brand that not only creates, but also helps shape modern architecture, pointing toward an increasingly transparent and fascinating future for all those who appreciate design excellence. ...
