vittorio merloni - home appliance manufacturer
On 2011, Arsenal Football Club signed a sponsorship agreement with the owner of Hotpoint, a domestic home appliance manufacturer, which appears to be an alliance between two undoubtedly British institutions.
However, as with Wenger, London has become the most representative team in Europe. The Italian family business was established by Vittorio Merloni as the second largest home equipment supplier in Europe.
In 1930, Meloni's father, Aristid, set up the company in Fabriano, Italy's hometown of Marche, and is also a historic paper center in Europe.
