Marelli Maestralino - 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 1910, Marelli released the Maestralino model , which soon became the most representative and efficient ceiling fan of the early ‘900. The Maestralino fan was manufactured in many different versions and diameters, with 3 or 4 blades, and exported worldwide (mostly in the British Empire’s Colonies) for decades.
