The History of the Savoia family has been an integral part of life in Central Europe, and particularly in Italy, for almost 1,000 years. This noble family was responsible for forming the Kingdom of Italy in 1861, and held the Italian Crown during the nineteenth century, in the twentieth century under King Victor Manuel III and subsequently under Humberto II, the Prince of Piedmont.
After the First World War, in Turin in northern Italy, Domenico Scappino became well-known through the creation of garments and men's accessories made from silk, which soon achieved noteworthy acceptance.
In Italy, the Scappino name became synonymous with quality and elegance. Such was the fame acquired in the 1930s that the Prince of Piedmont, Humberto II, named Scappino as the Official Supplier for the Royal House. This was to be the start of a long relationship, surviving to this day, between the Savoia family and the Scappino brand.
While the history of Italy and its royalty came to an end in 1946 with the declaration of the Italian Republic, the association between the lineage of the Savoia Family and the tradition of the Scappino brand remain in the memory of all Italians
Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia, Prince of Piedmont and Venice, and direct heir of one of the most ancestral dynasties in Europe, is today the archetypal image of the Scappino brand. The young Prince Emanuele Filiberto has gained prominence throughout Europe and especially in Italy as a charismatic figure who captures the attention of society; this is due to the particular way in which he handles himself in the public eye with a charm that blends tradition and contemporary lifestyle.
In the twenty-first century, the Prince of Piedmont and Venice and Scappino strengthen their ties once again through fashion and design that form part of an Italian tradition which, proud of its origin, is looking to the future.
