Ugo Pollice

Pollice Illuminazione was born with Vincenzo Pollice, a pioneer in the field of light, who in 1908 experimented and investigated, anticipating the times of a technology yet to be invented.

His nephew, Ugo Pollice, also from Puglia, was born in Taranto in 1901 but soon moved to the North with his family.

He attended the Grammar School and then the Polytechnic of Milan, graduating in Engineering in 1923, when he was only 22 years old. The following year he completed an apprenticeship period at the “Alfieri e Colli” company, no longer operating nowadays, and completed his first work experience there. 1925 is the year of his debut as manager. He went to his native region, Puglia, and opened a technical representative office in Bari. Two years later he extended his presence to Rome, with another office. On this occasion, he assumed a very important representation: he was the exclusive agent for central and southern Italy of a company operating in the sector of rational lighting fixtures construction. It was a German company, based in Leipzig: “Koerting & Mathisen”. His collaboration continued effectively in the following years and the products of the German company were distributed with considerable success. So in 1929, after only two years, Eng. Pollice was called to Milan to head the General Representative office for Italy. That is a period which offers him big opportunities to deepen his knowledge in the field of lighting science, both for the technological and the applicative and commercial aspects.
