We are most proud to present to you our company VIAR S.p.A.. We are internationally renowned as a reliable and dynamic partner in the design, manufacture and supply of outlet fittings, connectors, special flanges and forged pieces.  

Our story begins in the early Eighties when Franzosi Senior formed a competent, trustworthy and highly competitive company to cater to the various needs of petrochemical, gas and energy cogeneration plants and industries.  

Franzosi family. Davide and Luca Franzosi with the founder of VIAR, Franzosi Senior.

His unique knowledge of production, materials and cost control, gained over more than 25 years of experience, enabled the newly formed company to rapidly achieve a prestigious leading position worldwide

Initially specialised in the production of Branch Outlet Fittings and Forged Fittings, VIAR  soon started supplying a wide range of special and bespoke pieces in response to International Market demands. 

Even as we grow, diversify and adapt, two important principles remain at the heart of our company: constant dedication to optimum quality and first-class customer service

Equipped with extensive expertises and by abiding by these fundamental principles we can guarantee, to you, our highly-valued customer, both unbeatable quality and unbeatable service.



Why a lion.


The Serenissima in Sumirago. The Lion of Saint Mark, heart of our banner. It may seem strange, even bizarre, but it hasn’t come right from the dreamworld.  It is more than real, it’s the third face of our coin. Of our being Viar.
The lion is the concrete representation of Saint Mark, evangelist, and has accompanied Venice over centuries, also appearing in the cities belonging to its Republic. Noblesse oblige, it could not but accompany Marco Polo towards the Indies and China: a Venetian patrician, ambassador, writer and, above all, merchant, he spread the science of this art to new borders. His representation, business capacity, the fact of fighting his way, were in his and our DNA:  without trade, without ambassadors, Viar, could not be identified with study, design and production.


Popular culture tells of the closed book, the raised sword and tail as symbols of Venice in a state of war. Equally, the lowered sword and the open book are considered as the picture of the time of peace. As the Serenissima never codified its symbols, these interpretations have no documentary confirmation: it doesn’t matter, we like to think we can trade with an open book, in peace, though with our sword raised. We like to think about time, place and the unbearable lightness of being able to work in-between. With open wings.

Years to remember
