In 1937, Archimede Mancini founded his first factory, “La Fisarmonica” together with Egisto Bontempi in Potenza Picena, Castelfidardo, Italy. After the war in 1950, Mancini relocated his company to the city of Pesaro, Italy. He passed away in 1976.
The design of his first chromatic harmonicas pretty much resembled the Hohner Chromonica.
The 10 and 12 hole chromatics that followed were very unique, stylish, and had very particular shapes. They were branded “London Pride” and “Mondial”.
So far I have seen the Mancini chromatics in silver, black and red.
