The origins of Dal Negro are in a small Austrian-owned company that started to produce playing cards in 1756. Located in Treviso, Italy they produced their cards for more than 170 years until 1928. The Austrian Empire had been defeated in World War I & had owned the old playing cards factory.
It was given to the current Dal Negro family to repay a business debt owed to them by the Austrians before the war. Dal Negro grasped the opportunity and gradually became the renowned world leader in the production of quality and regional playing cards. They also started to produce gaming boxes, Backgammon sets, and other items with the same high quality and attention to detail. The company moved from its original factory in Piazza Tommasini to a location in Viale F. Lli Bandiera, Treviso in the North East of Italy.As part of its growth strategy, Dal Negro moved into its new headquarters located in Piazza Cavarzerani at Carbonera di Treviso. Treviso is a small pleasant medieval city with the city walls still in existence. Dal Negro is still a genuine family-run company. The current owner & CEO is Franco Dal Negro.
