65 years of quality and innovation


1954 - 1980

In January 1954 Carlo Civera, together with his wife Maria, opened a small workshop in Contrada Santa Croce, Brescia, for the production of artificial plants and natural seeds in wood. Its rapid expansion led him, in less than a year, to purchase the adjacent workshop and transform it into a high-class showroom.
This is how the history of Carlo Civera began, a company for which the most exciting challenge has always been the ability to continuously improve every aspect of its business.

1980 - 1990

The 80's represent an important milestone. Carlo Civera acquired the industrial and financial solidity to specialize in a sector that was still unknown to many, thus refining production techniques and improving the quality of the materials used to create artificial and semi-natural plants. During these years, Carlo is also supported by the artistic skills of his daughter Tiziana.
The company continues its expansion by securing important contracts in the fashion, film, hotel and banking sectors. In 1985, Carlo Civera broadened his offer by introducing artificial flowers, made with innovative materials at the time. Thanks to this innovation, the company acquires notoriety in the field of Floral Design.


Faced with continued growth, in 1990 the building in Via dei Mille 20D in Brescia was renovated and the Contrada Santa Croce office was closed, as it was too small for the sales volumes at the time. Carlo Civera can now enjoy a 1000 square meter space which includes a laboratory equipped with the latest technologies, a high-class showroom and executive offices. This expansion increases the notoriety of the company not only in Brescia and its province but also in all of northern Italy.
In these years, Carlo Civera receives important orders for clients such as Banca d'Italia, Frabosk and INA Assitalia, who increasingly request the design of zero-maintenance artificial green areas for headquarters and offices.

2000 - 2008

Carlo Civera, over the years, has always experimented with new ways to introduce nature into artificial spaces. This "green" philosophy led in 2005 to the idea of using preserved natural lichen to create indoor green walls and zero-maintenance vegetable panels. Thanks to an innovative process that replaces the sap with a non-toxic, completely biodegradable product, the plant panels and stabilized lichen walls created by Carlo Civera maintain their appearance for more than 8 years.

2009 - 2018

Thanks to the experience gained in 50 years of activity,in 2009 Carlo Civera introduced to the market his own vertical vardens made with the same artificial plants that made the company so successful. This innovation greatly expanded the brand's notoriety, making Carlo Civera the point of reference for designers and architects for the decoration of green areas.
In 2010, the company expanded abroad by opening a sales office in Spain. Here large orders that made the company known for the high quality of its products are managed.

2021 - Today

Introduction of the new corporate payoff "Inspired by nature since 1954". In this year, Carlo Civera launches a new concept of air plant composition, designed and manufactured entirely by our team. This new product meets the needs of the most ambitious designers and architects. With integrated lighting, our air plant compositions can be used to create relaxing green areas and as a secondary lighting point.
We see today as a new chapter in a long history of quality, innovation and excellent work. We always look for new ways to grow because "impossible" is nothing but another challenge to us.

Management and design offices

Carlo Civera realizes ready-to-use solutions, also called contract solutions, which do not aim at the simple design and arrangement of furnishing elements within a space but study the environment in its overall vision.

The wide range of services allows the client to save a lot of time: they no longer have to turn to dozens of people but to a single company able to design and implement their idea in every detail.

The showroom

The Carlo Civera showroom was inaugurated in Brescia in January 1954 and since then has been the reference point for the decoration of zero-maintenance artificial green areas. It was conceived both as a store and as an Interior Design Studio dedicated to the design of artificial green spaces, customized according to the needs of each client.

We have exploited the environment to create suggestive atmospheres in which clients can thoroughly evaluate all our collections of artificial plants and floral compositions combined with handmade furniture made in Italy. The environment stimulates creativity and the birth of new ideas for the decoration of any space. The environment stimulates creativity and the birth of new ideas for the decoration of any space.

The laboratory

Designing and creating something requires attention. Combining handmade tecnhiques with artisanal experience allows the creation of objects of incomparable beauty. Carlo Civera has thus been able to exploit his workshop to produce in-house every single element needed for his projects.

We can, for example, handcraft the pictures, frames and panels necessary to create unique and scenic lichen placings (available in 15 colors for indoor and outdoor environments) and artificial vertical gardens.
