Castor Srl is based in Mantova, a medieval city close to Verona. It was founded in 2003 by Angela Picozzi,
her sister and lawyer Elena and the technician Francesca Agosta. The active role played by Angela’s parents
is one of the company’s key elements; in fact her mother Graziella Picozzi is an excellent talent scout, who
discovered, among others, Martin Margiela, while Angela’s father Mario Picozzi brought with him all of the
experience gained in a lifetime dedicated to the art of traditional tailoring.
Thanks to the unique know-how of Angela and Elena’s pioneers parents, Castor became soon a successful
company specialized in high quality prototyping services, 100% made in Italy. Working with some of the
most important international maisons in the fashion industry, Castor grew its business very soon. In 2008
the company created its in-house luxury daily chic brand Mantù.
Castor has reached a unique high level positioning, based on activities totally different from the ones belonging to its competitors. The company believes in strategic coherence and has a long term vision
focused on customer’s satisfaction and resources empowerment. Castor and the Mantuan territory are deeply linked to each other. Giving the name Mantù to its in-house brand, the company’s aim is to export and share the lifestyle of this city and to represent it all over the world.
In June 2019 Castor announced a company reorganization in order to support its process of growth. The I.F.G - Italian Fashion Group acquired 80% of the company shares. The new corporate structure of Castor is now composed by Angela Picozzi (company founder), Claudio Di Nunno (strategic partner), Fabrizio Ruozzi (Chief Operating Officier) and Andrea Citterio (Chief Executive Officier).
