Ellesse – A company specializing in sportswear. Leonardo “Mantis” Servadio founded the company in 1959 in Perugia. The name is derived from his initials, which are pronounced “elle” and “esse”. The logo of Ellesse represents two red train spikes in combination with a tennis ball. This reflects on the one hand the sportswear and on the other hand the start of the brand with the production of skiwear. All about the brand Ellesse.
