Our history

The history of the Boccia Graphic Arts Graphic Industry

Arti Grafiche Boccia was founded in Salerno in 1961 thanks to the determination of Orazio Boccia. His typography immediately became a bridge between the past and the future.

The former, relating to the past, narrates a story of difficulty yet of great willpower, commitment and responsibility. That’s how Arti Grafiche Boccia began taking shape.

The future, on the other hand, represents the moment when determination, passion and a sense of recourse emerge, starting from investments in technology, quality and people.

The history of Arti Grafiche Boccia is made up of daily events but also of the desire to emerge, of intuitions and choices that allowed Orazio Boccia’s typography to become an innovative and competitive company, among the most important in the professional printing sector both in Italy and in Europe.

Arti Grafiche Boccia still means people and technologies at the service of the world of printed paper, but with a corporate philosophy, where innovation thrives hand-in-hand with the human element.

Our typography is a place that conveys emotions thanks to its passion and the staff who make it unique and come alive. AGB is not just a factory, it is also a tradition of almost sixty years where the boundary between quality, craftsmanship and industry has never been lost.
