The history of Celi begins in 1920 in a laboratory in Terni, specialized in creating furniture and fixtures for community buildings, religious institutions, and colleges.
In this place, the work was carried out at a calm pace dictated by artisanal craftsmanship. Each piece was created with great attention to detail, striving for perfection.
Soon, the workshop transformed into a full-fledged factory with over 200 employees.
The outbreak of the Second World War forced the company to close until the end of the conflict. However, the determination of the individuals can overcome anything, and with the war’s end, the finest cabinetmakers returned to Celi, continuing to work with dedication and respect for tradition.
The year 1978 is a focal point in the company’s history. While maintaining the same artisanal philosophy, Celi was reborn and focused on luxury furnishings, undertaking exclusive projects for different installations.
This courageous and innovative production choice led Celi to important achievements for prestigious international clients looking for unique and stylish works.
Throughout the years leading up to the new millennium, the company collaborated with renowned international architects, engineers, and designers. These collaborations included working with Pierluigi Spadolini on the Confindustria building in Rome, the Justice Palace in Turin, and the Chamber of Commerce in Florence. Celi worked with Renzo Piano on the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome. Luigi Sturchio utilized the company’s masterful cabinet-making skills for the construction of the Hotel Majestic in Rome
Since 2016, Celi has been collaborating with The Italian Sea Group in the creation of luxury yachts
