Gruppo Vecchia Toscana has established roots in the tanning sector since 1957, when Guglielmo Testai laid the foundations for what would soon become one of the most important tanning companies in the world. Today the tannery has an industrial complex of 25,000 m2 and is owned by Valerio Testai and his son Francesco.
