Carlo Vichi, the king of TV Mivar died at the age of 98


Today he leaves us Carlo Vichithe king of made in Italy TVs by Mivardied in 98 years after a past as a great entrepreneur. He had founded his own company in [1945inAbbiategrasso, building televisions until 2013 in a truly unstoppable competition. To then reinvent itself and launch another business. A truly unique story of Italian entrepreneurship.

Carlo Vichi, the king of Mivar televisions, dies

The Second World War ends and Mivar is born, one of the very first Italian companies in our country in full reconstruction. A company that followed the parable of the Italian technology industry for almost seventy years, with Carlo Vichi always ready to work and direct. The company of Abbiategrasso (Vichi was born in Grosseto but grew up in Milan) reaches almost a thousand employees in the 1960s, when the industrial boom of our country seems unstoppable.

From the 70s until 1998, Vichi is the first television manufacturer in Italy. So much so that she dreams of building her “Ideal factory”With his enormous experience. Dream crowned in 2001, when he opens the factory designed entirely by him. But the production doesn’t move because Vichi does not want “in addition to workers, trade unions also join”. Dislikes for the workers’ movement and sympathies for Mussolini explain his autocratic attitude in the company. He said “In the factory they say yes sir, as in the Army, no one can come to command in my house”. But the market commands everyone’s home and although with the new millennium it focuses on smart TVs with the Android operating system, in 2013 it must shut down the lines after almost seventy yearswhen there were now only 60 workers left.

In 2018 he had celebrated the 75 years of marriage with his wife Annamaria Blacksmiths, toasting in the company. In that same year he relaunched his brand Mivar (changing the company name) to build rational furnishings: tables with pull-out chairs and much more.

A controversial figure from many points of view but a tireless worker, an excellent representative of “Milan that never stops”. Some time ago he told the Corriere that for the funeral he wanted “a nice party inside the new Mivar”. A company that will never leave, not even now.
