Ferro Toso Barovier 1936–1939

In 1936, after the separation from his brother Nicolò, Ercole Barovier became partner of the S.A.I.A.R. Ferro Toso, forming Ferro Toso e Barovier. In 1939, it became Barovier Toso & C., and finally, in 1942, its name was changed to Barovier & Toso. Ercole Barovier remained artistic director of the company through 1972 and was succeeded by his son, Angelo, who was already a designer for the company.
