Emilio Garlatti, founder of the IVES brand, started its activity at the beginning of the century in San Vito al Tagliamento. He started repairing and selling the bicycles that were used during World War I by the “Bersaglieri” (riflemen). In the post-war period the activity grew steadily and in the years of World War II Emilio Garlatti founded IVES “Industria Velocipedi Emiliana Sala” in Parma. At the same time, however, he maintained the activity at San Vito, which was used for the sale of bicycles built in Parma.
Emilio was succeeded by his son Alvise and the bicycles he built were branded with the Wander brand, a brand of recognized quality.
