Alberto Camerlengo, Former Furla CEO Hired by Italian Home Decor Firm Alessi

Alessi, an Italian home décor brand, said on Monday that Alberto Camerlengo, a former executive at Furla, will take over as CEO. The company plans to continue concentrating on expansion and innovation internationally. Daniel Talens, who departed the company in December of last year to assume a leadership position at the glass mosaic and outdoor décor company Bisazza, is replaced by Camerlengo in February.

After completing his studies in economics at Milan’s Bocconi University, Camerlengo joined Furla in 2011 as its chief operating officer and became its CEO in 2017. He served as Fossil Italy’s chief operating officer from 1999 until 2004. He served as CEO of Brooks Brothers Europe until 2011 following his departure from Fossil.

Alessi changed course during Milan Design Week, presenting a line of goods that marked the beginning of a new era in the company’s continuous plan to revitalize the brand. The lineup featured creations by London-based designer Michael Anastassiades, a Cypriot, with his stylish Menhir coffee moka; Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa, who collaborated with 102-year-old Samiro Yunoki, a Japanese dyer, on his Eugenia glassware; and Studio Nendo, a well-known Japanese design group, on their Toru tea kettle.

The company’s long history began 103 years ago as a foundry and workshop for brass and nickel silver sheets. After the 1980s, the company grew to become a major force in home design. Over the years, Alessi has become well-known throughout the world for its boundary-pushing designs that have been inspired by some of the most vibrant figures in architecture and design, including Ettore Sottsass, Aldo Rossi, Achille Castiglioni, and Philippe Starck.The brand’s global rise has been sparked by Alberto Alessi, the grandson of founder Giovanni Alessi. In 1970, when Alessi shed its industrial roots and transformed into a center of creative design, he formally joined the firm.
Camerlengo’s commercial acumen and “success in guiding and developing winning business strategies” were praised by the corporation in a statement.

“His appointment is a source of great satisfaction for us, as we are confident that his vast experience and expertise will be decisive in meeting the emerging challenges in the market. We are confident in his entrepreneurial vision, energy and interpersonal skills, which we consider essential for the achievement of our business goals,” Alberto Alessi said.
