1946

From an artisan company "Morgana di Mario Pettenon" to an industrial group that looks to the future between history. "Morgana" was founded in 1946 by Mario Pettenon, entrepreneur, philanthropist and art lover. A company that right since its inception saw Arturo Pegorin's cooperation with the founder in masterly and tireless artisan product creation.

A LONG WALK IN
BEAUTY

The foundations of our solid company are steadily growing in determination, tenacity and specialised consultancy. Before Pettenon specialised in professional products for hairdressers, lipstick, nail polish, face powder and perfume were the company’s focus. As a young assistant in charge of producing Pettenon products, Arturo Pegorin, eagerly learned from the hordes of expe chemistry consultants who were regularly called into the company to create specialized formulas. It is a combination of these developed skills and experience that still distinguishes Pettenon Cosmetics s.p.a. today. In 1988, Pettenon Cosmetics embarked on an exciting new chapter. When Mario Pettenon passed away, his prestigious company was passed on to the Pegorin family. Today, Pettenon’s story continues with Federico and Gianni Pegorin at the reins. In less than twenty years, Federico and Gianni took Pettenon from a company with a turnover of 400 million Italian Lira and 8 employees to a prospering industrial group with a turnover of 64.5 million Euro, 220 employees and a growth trend of +19% in the last three years.

Industrial company for the global market across innovation, specialisation and quality. Today, Pettenon’s story continues with Federico and Gianni Pegorin at the reins. In less than twenty years, Federico and Gianni took Pettenon from a company with a turnover of 400 million Italian Lira and 8 employees to a prospering industrial group with a turnover of 64.5 million Euro, 220 employees and a growth trend of +19% in the last three years.
Gianni, a specialised chemical expert, poured his passion into the Pettenon product formulas, while Federico’s grit and expertise gave Pettenon a commercial boost.

Since 1988, when Arturo and his two sons took over the reins, the artisan company began transforming into an industry. In 1998 the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Agriculture and Artisanship of Padua awarded Arturo Pegorin the Gold Medal of "Fedeltà al Lavoro e del Progresso Economico" (Loyalty to the Labour and Economic Progress).
