In 1875 the Maglio arrived in Maglie (Le)Italy , where the company is still located today. It was the talent and tenacity of Antonio, who opened an inn with a change of horses, to lay the foundations of a brand that has spanned decades, fashions, wars, social changes. To follow the customs of the time, Giuseppe, Antonio's son, in the city center, opened a cafe with an adjoining confectionery workshop. Worthy heir to such an enterprising father was Dante, who in the early twentieth century not only joined the main activity of banquets and home receptions, but started the production of artisan liqueurs. As for the many specialties based on almond paste, Dante found in the chocolate, used for the coating, a precious ally to prolong its conservation. His son Vincenzo, in the 1960s, found fertile ground to intensify the production of chocolate and pastries: innovative spirit, invented recipes, enriched the confectionery production and decided to identify the company with the brand with the buggy.
Currently, at the head of the Maglio group, there are Maurizio and Massimo, who have inherited an invaluable heritage of values and knowledge and the responsibility of making Maglio live, in the present and in the future, in Italy and abroad.
