Years of invaluable experience of the founder Vincenzo Pagano in developing the winning concept of "insight-innovation" combined with dedication and professionalism of the sons Enzo and Andrea Paco Pagano ensure the continuous success of the Pagano brand and its recognition for excellence in quality, elegance, technology and functionality. The secret lies in the sophisticated chemistry between tradition and innovation, design and contemporary culture, and the respect of wood as a noble raw material. Pagano’s ambition is to design, create and implement customised solutions that combine a wide range of technological and architectural elements tailored to the needs and the taste of each client, while respecting the surrounding environment and Nature.
The bond between wood ,as a transformable and flexible raw material, and the Pagano family goes back to the three generations. Vincenzo Pagano’s grandfather and father, who originally moved from San Marzano to Cetara (both located in the beautiful Amalfi Coast), first worked in the construction of carts and carriages and then became builders of typical fishing boats named “Gozzi”. The work of a facocchio (master artisan of carts) required skills and knowledge of the materials, and was not simply limited to the assembly of parts. A facocchio was responsible for the choice and the drying process of wood at all stages leading up to the assembly of the cart. He also had to carefully evaluate the stress, twists and pressures that each part of the cart is subject to when pulled by an animal and loaded with weights. Timber treatment stages were very long – from drying to aging and use, but for the facocchio it was his craftsmanship combined with great skill and experience in the use of self-propelled carpentry that ensured the strength, stability and durability of the carts.
Great dynamism in the construction of carts, long aging processes of the wood ensuring high tolerance to weather, have been the focus for the Pagano family since the trading days in Cetara facing the building of the “Gozzi” boats. The boats were built by hand and, according to specific criteria, the early steps of the wooden frame defining was fundamental, because the artisans were tracing the lines and bends, defining the shaping of the boat.
In this art too, the treatment of wood was the first step to take to ensure weather resistance, durability and strength.
The technical mastery, love for raw materials and attention to detail across three Pagano generations resulted in a unique system in the construction of luxury homes. Ancient roots have become priceless treasures.
