Our History

The origins

Formento was born in 1959 thanks to Mr. Filippo’s and his wife Paola’s passion for the protection and the recovery of the artistic heritage. The company grows and develops through the collaboration with professor Nino Lambroglia, founder and director of the Istituto degli Studi Liguri. Formento enters the building world and develops a very keen interest in the issues of consolidation and conservation of historical buildings in Liguria.

Formento begins working under the direction of Architectural Heritage and Landscape Authority of Liguria, cooperating in the restoration of many buildings of historical interest. During the same years the company begins a fruitful collaboration with Heritage and Landscape Authority of Liguria and takes part in many excavations campaigns in Liguria.
