History of Orovilla

The history Orovilla: from the first Milanese metal trader to leading company in buying and selling of precious metals

The history of Orovilla. a company specialised in the buying and selling of precious metals, such as gold, silver and platinum, is closely linked to the history of Italy and, in particular, to the evolution and changes which have occurred in Italy over the last sixty years.

In the 1950s, i.e. in the post-war period in which Italy underwent a period of rebirth and a significant economic and social growth that was defined as the golden age in the history of Italy as a whole. Mario Villa, born and bred in Milan, decided to open a gold trading business, that was initially called the “Mario Villa Banco Metalli”. It was in this climate of upheaval and great economic and social euphoria that Mario Villa decided to contribute, with his small business, to the economic revival of Milan.

Mario Villa’s metal trading business was a great success from the very start locally and in the space of a few years was transformed from a small-town company into a much bigger business, thanks to hard work and dedication.

Thanks to his strong ties with the area and knowledge of local needs, Mario Villa’s metal trading business continued to expand over time. It is no coincidence that Mario Villa also opened a factory for the production of gold and precious metals and then, turned his attention to the purchase and sale of gold and silver bullion. This is how the buying and selling of precious metals began. Over the following decades, it became one of the most prestigious and authoritative companies in the sector throughout Italy.

Thanks to the success of this business, Mario Villa continued to expand and broaden his horizons. He gradually began to establish the business throughout Italy and abroad. Indeed, he became one of the greatest experts in the field of trading and processing gold. Even now, he is a genuine point of reference for anyone who wants to buy or sell precious metals.

Today, Mario Villa’s work continues thanks to the legacy left to his son Giorgio, who carries on the business with dedication and diligence, following in the footsteps of his father. The history of Mario Villa continues according to the teachings left by its founder. The company continues to grow and confirm its leadership in the field.

In addition to the original office in Via Mazzini, in the heart of commercial Milan, dedicated to the buying and selling of precious metals, a modern facility for the newly founded 8853 S.p.a. was set up in Pero in the outskirts of Milan, dedicated to the processing of precious metals and dental alloys, of semi-finished products in gold, silver, platinum, palladium, and their alloys.

But there is more because the company also manufactures specific products for laboratories, such as platinum crucibles for which 8853 S.p.A. is the leading manufacturer in Italy, as well as the recovery of any type of precious metal.

In the historical Orovilla headquarters in Milan and at 8853 S.p.A in Pero, you can buy and sell any type of precious metal: from pure metals to gold bars and coins, from second-hand gold to gold tokens, without forgetting scrap gold.

All the operations can also be carried out on-line in absolute confidentiality and total safety on the website.
