The history of Inglesina began in a curious, original way.
Everything started with the passion of the company's founder,
Liviano Tomasi, for four wheels and mechanics in general. However,
young Tomasi was originally interested in go-karts and in fact he
dedicated himself to the tuning up and setting of karts for racing.
But it was a short step from engines to babies - first through the
production of tricycles - especially with the encouragement of a
woman: his wife, Bruna. So, in December 1963, at first accompanied
by his brothers Augusto and Sergio, Liviano Tomasi embarked on what
was to prove a far-sighted and courageous business venture: he
created L'Inglesina Baby and, with it, the production of the first
English-style prams - including the historic "London" - which even
today represents one of the inspirations for the unmistakable
The company experienced constant and rapid growth, linked to the
visibility the brand gained on the Italian market. For a decade,
L'Inglesina Baby's production remained centred on English-style
prams but as early as the 1970s it introduced a revolutionary
stroller: the "Apollo" (whose name pays homage to the new era of
space travel). In the 1980s, and the whole next decade, the company
developed a presence in other international markets as well,
expanding its product line with articles such as baby seats, car
seats and baby slings.
Today L'Inglesina Baby is one of the leading companies on the
international scene, specializing in the early infancy sector and a
recognized interpreter of the "Made in Italy" style, elegance and
quality, serving as its ambassador to more than thirty countries
around the world for more than forty years.
