In 1871 Reale Manifattura Luigi Cantono was established in Biella. In 1878 Acqua di Biella was granted the Savoia coat of arms, an honour bestowed only on suppliers to the Savoia Royal Household.
The House of Savoy (in Italian : Casa Savoia ) is a royal family that was established in 1003 in the historic region of Savoy . Through gradual expansion, the family grew in power from governing a small county in the Alps of northwestern Italy to the absolute dominion of the kingdom of Sicily in 1713 to 1720 (exchanged for Sardinia). Through its minor branch, the House of Savoy-Carignano, it led the unification of Italy in 1861 and ruled the Kingdom of Italy from 1861 to 1946 and, briefly, the Kingdom of Spain in the 19th century. The Savoy kings of Italy were Victor Emmanuel II, Umberto I, Victor Emmanuel III and Umberto II. The last monarch ruled for a few weeks before being deposed after the Constitutional Referendum of 1946, after which the Italian Republic was proclaimed.
Production of the legendary Acqua di Biella has continued uninterruptedly from 1871 until the present day with the loving devotion of four generations of the same family.
New fragrances distinguished by the same standards of quality that testify to a perfumery tradition in the best Italian style have been added to complement Acqua di Biella No 1.
