Esperia logo

“Hesperia is the name with which the Greeks originally designated the western lands, in the direction of the sunset (vesper = evening). The name was also used by the Latin poets to indicate Italy.”

Esperia was founded in 1952 in Poggibonsi, Siena, a place full of history, located in the territory of upper Val d’Elsa, at the western spurs of the hills of Chianti.

The venture developed thanks to the initiative of three young friends, Romano Conforti, Eugenio Cortigiano and Mario Moni, who shared previous work experience in the historic SACE glassworks.

From the outset the company had solid ties with the district in Tuscany, long renowned for glassmaking and subsequently also for furniture manufacturing.

At first Esperia produced lighting fixtures for the bath environment, but starting in the 1960s the firm branched out across the whole technical lighting sector, thanks to remarkable structural and productive growth.

During this period Esperia also began a fertile, lasting relationship with Prof. Angelo Brotto.

The first expansions date back to this period, along with the debut of the company at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, with the participation at Euroluce in 1969, the first of a long series. The brand achieved great international acclaim and began to explore new collaborations with leading exponents of the art of glassmaking, such as Venini.

Today Esperia is an example of excellence, engaged on a daily basis in research and development for the creation of innovative contemporary projects.

The firm is now run by the second generation, with the children of Romano Conforti, Riccardo and Giuliana, and the third generation, with Jacopo, driven by a shared design vision projected towards the future.

Esperia’s production is composed of unique “art” lamps crafted and assembled by hand, thanks to the experience gained in over 65 years of history.

The materials, including the brass and crystal of Colle Val d’Elsa, the true distinctive signature of Esperia, are crafted with great skill by the artisans of the district, and represent the starting point for iconic luminous sculptures, as well as custom creations for the retail and contract sectors.
