Gennaro Dargenio is born in 1970 in Barletta, a city on the north coast of Apulia. He takes his first steps into the textile sector when he is just 17, standing out as producer of knitted fabrics and developing a great knowledge of raw materials, their structure and their technical process. It is in these years that his perceptive idea takes shape, making real the most important project of his life. The year 2008 is the turning point: Gennaro founds Circolo 1901. Today he counts on a longstanding experience of thirty years, an overpowering passion and an unceasing search of trends and raw materials. The same features that give light to his unique, original and unconventional brand.
