Do you own your designs?
Cromo NB Italy was founded on January 10th, 1927 by Giacomo Basevi, called Nino (that is why the letters N.B. is featured on the company name). Since its start, it has employed some of the most iconic Italian Painters in History which include many of the masterpieces of Adolfo Simeone, Lippi, Bianchi, Secchi, Bonelli, and others to name just a few. In Italy and Slovakia, there is a balance of basement systems with temperature control that house many of the originals. In the USA Saint Francis Cromo currently has 2 Simeone originals on loan for travel shows and displays.
Since its early days Cromo NB has employed many artists and designers that have amassed countless originals that are in the Cromo NB vaults that we offer and use for our clients. All the designs are meticulously catalogued and copyrighted.
