The story of Iterei begins in the first half of the 60s in Bologna. The company was born from the passion of the two founders, Giuliano Malservisi and Gian Pietro Parmeggiani who, from childhood, loved airplanes and military vehicles. As demanding maquetists, they no longer conform to what is in the market, in a thriving and dynamic market in the process of progressive expansion, but they decide to convey their passion and their search for detail in their daily work. The first commercial name of the company, officially founded in 1962, is "Italstamp" and the first kit that comes to the market, under the "Aliplast" brand, is a 1/72 scale model of the Italian hunting Fiat G-55. After about ten years, the commercial name of the company becomes "Italaerei" and then becomes, through a small phonetic contraction, the definitive "Italian". The company logo, composed of two red and green vertical bands and a stylized frontal logo of a propeller plane, identifies the strong Italian vocation and the experience in the production of aircraft models. Italleri has also acquired, during his operational life, the "supermodel" molds, the "protar" and the "esci".
