Marelli Maestrale - Italy - 1915


The first Italian ceiling fan manufacturer was Ercole Marelli, in Milan, starting its industrial adventure in 1891 with the production of the so-called “electrical air agitators “. At the time, the most popular ceiling fans – most of them American – were both very big and heavy. Marelli built instead a series of alternating-current fans, which were lighter, more elegant and practical, and most of all, more suitable for a domestic use. Its business success was immediate, and within a few years Marelli became one of the largest fan manufacturers in the world.
Around 1915 Marelli released Maestrale, a large-size ceiling fan conceived for huge and wide settings. Inspired to Maestralino (the best selling model of the Italian company), Maestrale is a wonderful 3-bladed fan (170 cm diameter), widely used in many luxury hotels of the British Colonies: in Singapore at Raffles’, in Mumbay at Taj Mahal’s, (where it could still be admired until not long ago), in Rangoon.
