The origin of the name Martel



Martel's name is inspired by the historical roots of the family Bertocchi, in fact, Martel is the nickname used in our village to identify the descendants of Francesco Bertocchi son of Antonio that everyone knew and call him Martel because he plays the famous hammer bells of the village.
(hammer in our dialect is Martel)

A trace of these sources was discovered in an old article appeared in the September issue of the magazine's 1935 "La val Gandino", where in particular was shown the text of the letter written "by the Martel".

All in all have passed a few years but the original text of the letter makes it clear that they were far from our time both in the way of expressing himself, but especially in the content, can you imagine nowadays write a letter requesting appointment "is to pay the livelihood of my family "






The offices are in "via Nosari 18 a Gandino (BG) Italy", in a building of 4 floors with a total of 650 square meter of our property.


The factory is in via Serio 10 Casnigo (BG) Italy, in a building of early 1900.
These two pictures are of 2000, when we bought the property framed in red.
