Our story started in the 60s, when Michele Giglio inherited his family's business: a fabric and sewing store in the center of Palermo, Sicily. The Giglio family's precious heritage included an unrivaled knowledge of the field, meticulous attention to detail, and a strong desire to achieve customer happiness.
In 1970, under his direction, what began as a one-person business, flourished and turned into an Ltd Company. Giglio entered the fashion industry by transforming his small family store into an authentic luxury fashion boutique, expanding to new and more spacious spaces.
Still entirely owned and managed by the Giglio family today, the family business has now turned into a joint-stock company, whose remarkable and continuous growth over the years has led to the opening of new boutiques and to a complete renovation of the existing ones. Giglio's strength lies in the synergy it developed throughout its boutiques in Palermo, all located in Piazza Crispi and in Via della Libertà, two of the most relevant city hotspots.
The company logo was created in 1965 by Franco Giacometti, a graphic designer from Treviso, who was one of the most valuable graphic designers in Italy at the time, as he had already collaborated with many important Made in Italy brands like Benetton and Aprilia. Today, after 60 years and after having undergone very subtle restyling throughout the years, our logo still remains modern.
