Clementoni was established in Italy in 1963 by founder Mario Clementoni at the age of twenty and is still run by the founding family. Clementoni produces games and puzzles for children and adults. The business started in a garage in Recanati with a few people who worked by hand and the first products were created piece by piece. Three years later they moved to a small building and the company began to develop. A few years later work started on a factory which is now the company's head office.
