Living an Italian story since 1900

More than just a brand, Armeria Meschieri is a philosophy to live by, a community with a timeless, traditional Italian elegance.

Our Logo

The Story of Dardo

The Armeria Meschieri logo features a Springer Spaniel, a symbol deeply intertwined with our brand’s heritage and values. This choice honors the legacy of Marco Valcarenghi, who pioneered the introduction of this exceptional breed to Italy. His lifelong dedication to these dogs forged a bond so profound that it inspired the creation of our logo.

In 1987, when we opened our first shop in Varese, we chose to incorporate these values into our identity. Our logo features Dardo, our Springer Spaniel, who achieved international acclaim by winning both beauty and work competitions simultaneously—a rare and prestigious accomplishment.

The Springer Spaniel, renowned for its intelligence, loyalty, and spirited nature, perfectly captures the essence of Armeria Meschieri. Therefore, our logo is not merely an emblem; it is a testament to the values and the rich story that Armeria Meschieri proudly upholds.
