1900 - 2022: the 122nd anniversary of activity for Zema

The first week of February, every year, represents an important time for the whole Zema family. Because it is precisely within this time window that the anniversary of the start of the entrepreneurial activity occurs which is still an icon of design and style in Bari today.

From February 3, 1900 to today, the Zema family has always been able to renew and innovate its commercial offer with an avant-garde approach to the tastes, culture and refinement of the most contemporary design.

Founded by Cav. Demetrio Zema, what started out as a typography is today a brand recognized and appreciated by lovers of style and refinement, characteristics that have led Zema stores to be recognized as important partnerships with world-famous brands.

A company that has been able to intercept, anticipate and propose always new and courageous ideas from both a commercial and entrepreneurial point of view. In 1967 the sons of Cav. Demetrio, Michele and Gabriele, with the enthusiasms and innovative ideas of the young Giacomo and Elio, inaugurated the current headquarters, expanding the horizon of the commercial offer that accompanied the printing press with stationery and office furniture.

Since 1992, with the management of Sigismondo Zema, the company has experienced a further moment of evolution suited to its time, with the closure of the printing house to the full advantage of the stationery, gift, office and contract furniture sector. A constant evolution that has never stopped: on its 122nd anniversary, Zema is the shop par excellence where you can indulge in an immersion in design, timeless style and accessories that are always elegant and refined, perfect for an important gift or for the sake of pampering.

And the horizons have expanded even more, bringing the Zema reality from the Umbertino district to the whole world thanks to the new online shop that digitally reproduces the experience of purchasing furniture items, stationery and gadgets for every taste in-store. Continuous improvement, experience and orientation towards the future are indisputable guidelines for bringing a company to be part of the history of a city and an entire sector: "Demetrio Zema S.r.l. represents in Italy the only historical company in the sector to still be operating and is always the national reference for excellence in its field.
