Some handcrafted fireplaces were made as far back as in 1970 but the first prefabricated refractory firebox started to be produced at the end of 1973. At the same time, the marble machining department started to prepare the first marble and stone fireplace claddings. The company’s market in Italy and abroad underwent rapid growth and its products were designed and tested to meet the strictest European standards from the very start.
Palazzetti has always stood out for the innovative features of its products which were almost always the first of their kind to be launched on various markets: prefabricated cement barbecues, fireboxes capable of heating the entire home using water (Termopalex) or air (Ventilpalex), post-combustion to reduce harmful emissions, Ecofire® pellet stoves and then hybrid wood-pellet stoves (Multifire) and integrated flue gas cleaning systems (O2Ring), sealed stoves and the very first App dedicated to controlling stoves from outdoors. A long, very dynamic journey during which the Company has invested energy and wilfulness as well as a particular drive that expresses the ability to create, to innovate and to fulfil a vision that gradually transmutes into new projects.
MISSIONThe needs of end consumers – who make increasingly more careful and knowledgeable choices – are always the focus of the company’s ongoing research that invests energies and resources into creating uncomplicated products that are enjoyable to use, guarantee extremely high performances paired with minimal environmental impact and keep energy consumptions under control while ensuring high outputs.
