Italian artist and designer
Vittorio Valabrega (1861–1952) was an Italian artist and designer. The Valabrega Brothers company was opened in Turin in 1884. It became known for the production fine-quality liberty-style furniture. Vittorio Valabrega became the owner of the company in the mid 1890s. Valabrega participated in the 1898 Turin exhibition, where he won the Silver Medal; the Paris 1900 Universal Exposure exhibition, where he was awarded the Gold Medal; the 1906 Milan exhibition, where he won the Jury Grand Prize; and the 1911 Turin exhibition, where he was awarded the Gold Medal.
