In 1870, Franz Rizzolli, native from Montan, founded his hatmaking company.
His son Felix purchased the historic Laubenhaus Nr. 60 in Bolzano’s town centre in 1919. His own son Helmuth, aided by his wife Eva, continued running the business successfully and expanded it as they years went by.
Eventually, the business was passed on to their son Thomas and his wife Paula and the great success story of the now-historic family business began.
With the purchase of the „Franziskanerstuben“ inn, the Laubenhaus Nr. 62 and ist redevelopment into the Goldenstern Townhouse, a new chapter in the family history of Rizzolli is being written.
