Supplying Fiat and the Italian army, it gained recognition from mountaineers. 

In the 60s, Ferrino expanded into leisure and camping gear, staying resilient across three centuries and five generations. 

Renowned climber Reinhold Messner collaborated in the 80s, creating the "Extreme" tent.

In the 90s the HighLab, a high-altitude testing ground was created. It involved both pros and enthusiasts globally.
